TAKING A STAND WITH LUTHER
Martin Luther reminds us of the importance of taking a stand. Battles rage all around us and inside of us. If you don’t think so than you are not looking hard enough. When Luther was in hiding in Wartburg Castle for two years he threw his inkwell at the devil. Luther saw evil and gave it his best shot (reportedly the stain is still on the wall in the Wartburg Castle). Luther refused to recant his Biblical understanding of the Gospel even before the emperor with his famous “Here I stand”!
I hope when my day comes to stand before God, I am able to say that I stood on the side of good. I advocated for those most in need. I shared in word and deed God’s grace through Christ, and acted accordingly in public when the times called for a righteous stand.
Where do you stand?
