Luther on How People Come to Know God

95 years ago, a professor of systematic theology at Concordia Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO compiled a devotional book for the faithful. On October 15th, this was part of the offering:

“For it is utterly impossible that human reason should apprehend even the least article of faith. Nor can any mortal have any right thought or sure knowledge of God whatever, without the Word of God. The farther and more deeply human reason goes in the investigation of God, His works, His will, and His counsel, the farther it gets from the knowledge of them, until it comes at last to know nothing and to believe nothing of God at all.”

The 66 books of the Word of God are the only sure repository of what God wants us to know about Himself. Plumb its’ depths every day and let Him transform you with a new vision of who He really is.
