Fear and Trembling

Serve the Lord with fear, and exult with trembling” (Psa2:11). Let somebody bring this into harmony for me: exult and fear! My son Hans can do it in relation to me, but I can’t do it in relation to God. When I’m writing or doing something else, my Hans sings a little tune for me. If he becomes too noisy and I rebuke him a little for it, he continues to sing but does it more privately and with a certain awe and uneasiness. This is what God wishes: that we be always cheerful, but with reverence.

Luther’s Tabletalk (from No. 148)

 

Jesus is Held High in the Elects’ Hearts

No one else holds or has held the place in the heart of the world which Jesus holds. Other gods have been as devoutly worshipped; no other man has been so devoutly loved.

John Knox (1505-1572)
