Month: February 2013 Springtime is coming…

I’ve been browsing the seed catalogs, the websites and books for “what to do this month” in (or about) the garden.  I must admit: I’m anxious.  Very anxious for Spring to come.  But then, you probably already knew that.   You know, though, I’m sure not as weary for Springtime as I have been in other years.  Maybe so much has been going on that I’ve not noticed that there has been enough rain to completely fill the swimming pool.  Or, maybe it’s been so busy around here that I haven’t stopped to notice (and lament) that there have only been a few — a very few — bright sunny days.  I guess I’ve noticed.

This is true. Martin Luther died on February 18, 1546. These last words of weakness echoed the life-changing truth he’d unearthed in the Scriptures: we don’t bring anything to the table of our justification. Jesus truly died for the ungodly. Luther came to understand that if we are to be accepted by God, we need a perfect righteousness we can’t produce — we need an alien righteousness given to us by Another. But this discovery didn’t just happen. It came after hours of the painstaking study of Scripture. Luther gave himself to the Book, which he later explained as the primary actor in the Protestant Reformation. And a great movement of God in our day won’t happen apart from that same ingredient. Pastors and Christian leaders must be devoted to God’s word. So we have much to learn from Luther, says John Piper.
