    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Send Me No Visions

Martin LutherMartin Luther:

I have made a covenant with my God that He send me neither visions, dreams, nor even angels. I am well satisfied with the gift of the Holy Scriptures, which give me abundant instruction and all that I need to know both for this life and for the life which is to come. Martin Luther

  3. I’ve just begun a book about the Wisdom of God by Nancy Guthrie. This quote makes me think that Martin Luther searched for God’s wisdom and found out that it comes from the Scriptures, not from other sources.
