Putting First Things First

May the merciful God protect me against the Christian Church which contains nothing but pure saints.  I want to be and remain in the church and among the little flock in which there are timid, weak, and ailing people who recognize and feel their sin, plight, and misery, who sincerely sigh and cry to God without ceasing for comfort and help, and who believe in the forgiveness of sins and are persecuted for the sake of the Word, which they teach and confess in purity and without adulteration.

  1. The first sentence really caught my attention. I had to read more to see what Luther was saying. What a prayer! What Jesus did at the cross is so powerful - He forgave my sin!
