Dietrich Bonhoeffer… he just won’t leave me alone. Quite a feat for a man who has been dead for a lot of years (Yes, I’m still reading “Discipleship”).
A gift that has any price attached to it is no longer a gift. The believer is saved by grace and not of works unless there might be some room for boasting. Salvation…it is the work of God and is freely given to men through Jesus Christ.
To these statements, I am pretty sure Martin Luther would have said, “Amen!”
Still, if he could tag along with me through the course of a day, would he believe that I have found that “grace through faith alone” that caused him to travel the steps to Wittenberg?
As history concludes of him… would Luther describe me as a person surrendered to the call of grace-driven discipleship?
