THE Promise of God

THE Promise of God
Maurice Montgomery
The promises of God, “said one man, “are like the clothes we wear; if
there is life in the body, they warm us, but not otherwise. Where there
is living faith, God’s promises afford warm comfort.” Thus we can say
with Luther, “Although I am a sinner, yet I despair not; for Christ, who
is my Redeemer and righteousness, liveth. In Him I have no sin, no fear,
no sting of conscience, and no fear of judgment. In Christ there is no
condemnation. I am indeed a sinner as touching this present life, but I
have a righteousness of God which is above this life, who is Christ my
Lord. In Him I rejoice.”
