To Ponder:

“Heaven is given unto me freely, for nothing. I have assurance hereof confirmed unto me by sealed covenants, that is, I am baptized, and frequent the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. Therefore I keep the bond safe and sure, lest the devil tear it in pieces; that is, I live and remain in God’s fear, and pray daily unto him. God could not have given me a better security of my salvation, and of the gospel, than by the death and passion of his only Son; when I believe that he overcame death, and died for me, and therewith behold the promise of the Father, then I have the bond complete. And when I have the seal of baptism and the Lord’s Supper prefixed thereto, then I am well provided for.” Martin Luther
