Righteous Only by Faith in Christ

Lucas_Cranach_d.Ä._-_Martin_Luther,_1528_(Veste_Coburg)Formerly, when our hearts were blinded by errors in teachings from Rome, we imagined that God was a salesman who sold his grace in exchange for our works and achievements.

Now, however, since the light of the gospel has dawned, we know that we are credited as righteous only by faith in Christ. Our hearts throw out all self-chosen works and perform only the work of our calling and the works of love, which God commands.

~ Martin Luther
