On This Day...
Again, my Old Lutheran Tidbit of the Day Calendar has come in handy in keeping me informed of great moments in Lutheran Geschichte.
On April 26, 1518, the Heidelberg Disputation began. At this meeting, Luther participated in a discussion on some of the newer evagelical ideas of the day. Luther took this opportunity to present his theology of the cross.
Lord God, Almighty and Everlasting Father, we give You all thanks and praise for enlightening our hearts and souls to the truth of Your love in and through Jesus Christ and Him crucified. We thank you for Your humble servant and defender of the Gospel, Martin Luther. Help us ever to retain the true doctrine of Your Word which You allowed Luther to teach in truth and purity.
