Humbly Receive His Word

August 20, 2019
By Martin Luther

"Every living thing that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground."... And rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

GENESIS 7:4, 12

Humbly Receive His Word

This account is sure evidence that even though God is long-suffering and patient, nevertheless He will finally punish the ungodly. Peter states (2 Peter 2:5): "If He did not spare the original world." . . . How much less will He spare us when we desecrate His name, when we lead an unworthy life in our vocation or profession, and when we sin daily against our conscience? Let us, therefore, learn to fear the Lord and with humility to receive His Word and to obey it; otherwise punishment will also overtake us, as Peter threatens.
