Another gem from Luther

To the extent we are Christians, we stand above the law and sin. Christ is the Lord of the law.  He is present and locked in our hearts, just as a precious stone is firmly mounted in a ring. When the law accuses us and sin terrifies us, all we need to is look at Christ. When we have taken hold of Him in faith, we have the victor over the law, sin, death and the devil with us. Because Christ rules over all of these, we won't be harmed.

From "Faith Alone," July 14
