Pastor Wolfmueller has highlighted a small section from Martin Luther’s introduction to the Psalms and we thought we’d pass it along. Luther writes that human emotions render “the heart of man…like a ship upon a troubled ocean” but that emotional turmoil also gives us opportunities to examine our souls.
The celebration of Easter is full of these moments, when in grief we remember our Savior’s death through to the hope, wonder and joy of resurrection morning. Luther exhorts his readers to feed deeply on the Psalter, wherein we see the “hearts of the saints” who were before us, facing all the storms of life. It is a mad world indeed, but the night is far spent, the day is at hand.
Team Mad Mondays prays you’ll be refreshed with the peace of Christ and by his word, ready to fight the good fight. He is risen indeed!
