from Pastor Ken’s Pen
“A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing.
Our helper he amid the flood, of mortal ills prevailing.”
~ Martin Luther
“The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress.”
While in seminary, the favorite hymn among the faculty and students was Martin Luther’s: “A Mighty Fortress is our God.” It’s worth the read; it’s more worth singing. Why? Because we need to know that God is our fortress against all attacks while in this world. The enemy cannot stand against a praying and praising Christian. When we go to God first and foremost, we will learn that “He is our Mighty Fortress!”
And though this world, with devils filled,
Should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed
His truth to triumph through us.
The Prince of Darkness grim,
We tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure,
For Lo! his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.
In Jesus Name,
