Luther quote



“Next to faith this is the highest art — to be content with the calling in which God has placed you. I have not learned it yet.”

                                                                                                     — Martin Luther




Pastor Mark Anderson’s take on the above quote:

There is more to this quote than meets the eye. Luther viewed the ordinary vocations of life as authentic Christian discipleship. This was consistent with his very down-to-earth view of the Gospel and represented one of his most radical insights into the nature of the Christian life. Contrast this with the myriad of current discipleship, following Jesus programs where piety runs amok and which amount to nothing more than spiritual ladder climbing projects.
