The Key to Living the Christian Life in One Sentence

For all of us who struggle with living a life that is worthy of our calling, Luther succinctly summarizes the Christian Life in his 1520 work, “On Christian Freedom”. One could spend their whole life gleaning from this one sentence.

“Here is the truly Christian life, here is faith really working by love, when a man applies himself with joy and love to the works of that freest servitude in which he serves others voluntarily and for nought, himself abundantly satisfied in the fullness and riches of his own faith.” – Luther
