Martin Luther. He was a man. He was a monk. He was Martin.
It is amazing how much one man could change the thinking of so many. He dispelled darkness. He opened doors to Truth. He stood up against a system that told him to sit down. He was a man.
He fought with himself to get close to God. He prayed. He worked. He repented. He worked harder. And then, he found the grace that God offers in Christ's sacrifice.
He used new technology to spread 'his' message...printed flyers. He used language that was offensive and brutal at times, especially when attacking someone who didn't think the way he did. He was no saint, nor was he an angel. He was Martin.
Here's hoping you will re-think his life on the anniversary of the 95 statements he posted on the Christian church's Facebook page in October of 1517. Re-think grace. Re-think relationship with God Almighty.
Read a book about him. Visit a special service. Celebrate Martin Luther. Celebrate the Word of God.
