Reading: Romans 6: 12-23 (Click to read text)
but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly, for he is victorious over sin, death, and the world. -- Martin Luther
You can be sure I was shocked when I saw these two big words on t-shirts at the Lutheran Campus Center at IUP. Good thing I got up close enough to read the fine print and stuck around long enough for some theological explanation. Otherwise, this girl may have never given that bunch a second chance!
Yes, thank goodness Martin Luther explained himself after his two, might I say, BOLD words! Romans Chapter 6 also clears up the matter more with:
What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means!... You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.... For the wages of sun is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 6: 15, 18, 23
(Maybe they could have put that on the back of the t-shirt. Just saying.) --Ruth Gates, frequent Camp Mount Luther Family Camper
Closing Prayer: Dear God, help us to believe and rejoice in Christ boldly. We are thankful He is victorious over sin, death, and the world. Amen.
