My Two Year Old Lutheran Blog

I started my blog two years ago with Martin Luther’s Heidelberg Disputation Thesis 26.

“The law says, “Do this,” and it is never done.
Grace says, “believe in this,” and everything is already done.”

I started this blog to track my Lutheran journey. I didn’t expect it to be read by anyone but me, to reflect on what I had written. The past two years I have thought often about Thesis 26 and have seen the effects of it in my life. I spent many years thinking that since God saved me, I then had to work as hard as I could to become worthy of God’s grace. While working with all of my might I knew deep inside that whatever I did I could never do enough, but I must work hard. My greatest seasons of peace came when I realized that I could not do it and I called out to God for help. Time after time I have seen that His grace is made perfect in my weakness. He is the supplier of everything I need. I now understand more that ever…

“The law says, “Do this,” and it is never done.
Grace says, “believe in this,” and everything is already done.”

    That is the best Christian doctrine that anyone could ever know.

    It is the grace of Christ…ALONE!

    Thanks be to God (and you) for reminding me of it.

    I need to hear it…and often.
