People Frequently Don’t Appreciate The Gospel Until They Don’t Have It Anymore

In times past we would have run to the ends of the world if we had known of a place where we could have heard God speak.

But now that we hear this every day in sermons, indeed, now that all books are full of it, we do not see this happening.

You hear at home in your house, father and mother and children sing and speak of it, the preacher speaks of it in the parish church—you ought to lift up your hands and rejoice that we have been given the honor of hearing God speaking to us through his Word. – Martin Luther
