Martin Luther was a very interesting man who dug deeply into God’s Word, the Bible, to find answers for his many spiritual questions. We invite you to join us at Living Hope next Sunday as we delve into that same Holy Word, and learn that it still speaks to us today in its truth and purity.
Learn about Martin Luther’s Shield (also called Rose, Coat of Arms, or Seal)
A mighty Fortress is our God, a trusty Shield and Weapon;
He helps us free from every need that hath us now o’ertaken.
The old evil Foe now means deadly woe;
Deep guile and great might are his dread arms in fight;
On Earth is not his equal.
With might of ours can naught be done, soon were our loss effected;
But for us fights the Valiant One, whom God Himself elected.
Ask ye, Who is this? Jesus Christ it is.
Of Sabaoth* Lord, and there’s none other God;
He holds the field forever.
~ Martin Luther, 1483-1546
