Gospel-Driven Quote of the Week

Martin Luther concerning those who seek to do good works in order to gain God’s favor:

    “Grace cannot stand it when we want to give something to God or establish merit or pay him with our works. This is the greatest of blasphemies and idolatries and is nothing less than the denial and even ridicule of God.”

(Martin Luther, Luther’s Works, 14, 34).
