Summary

Martin Luther realized that God credits righteousness to us through faith…when he realized this, he was reborn.

Selected highlights from this sermon

Martin Luther was studying to be a lawyer, but a lightning bolt struck nearby and terrified him. So he decided to become a monk. But as he took up their rigorous practices, he found no relief for his sin, guilt, and despair. 

It wasn’t until he was asked to teach theology from the books of Psalms and Romans that his eyes were opened. Luther began to cling to the gift of righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ and was born again. After this conversion, the world would never be the same.
