This sweet truth, that Christ died for sinners and rose again for their justification, will not help you unless you hope for yourself.  Yes, you will remain in your old skin while using this blessed saying as a cover for your sins.  Do not take this consolation for, although He died for all and rose again, yet, to you, He is not risen, for you have not yet apprehended, by faith, His resurrection.  The words you have heard, but their power you have not experienced. – Martin Luther (1483-1546)
