Let Nothing Terrify You

September 17, 2019
By Martin Luther

Abram took Sarai his wife.



Let Nothing Terrify You

It is not merely because of her wifely affection that [Sarai] follows her husband. She was aided by the Holy Spirit, who moved her womanly heart so that she also, disregarding everything else, followed God when He called, since she also desired to be saved and not be condemned with the idolaters. Peter, therefore, properly praises this obedience in 1 Peter 3:6 and wants wives to imitate this extraordinary virtue of Sarah. "You are," he says, "her children if you do right and let nothing terrify you."
