Church reformer Martin Luther once had a nightmare about being judged by the devil. From a scroll, Satan was reading all the sins Luther had ever committed.
“What hope of heaven do you have as a miserable sinner?” the devil accused.
Feeling despondent, Luther remembered the cross. “There’s one entry which thou hast not made, Satan,” he said.
When the devil inquired about it, Luther responded confidently: “The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7, KJV).
Praise God that he sent Jesus to be our Deliverer (Psalm 18:2) so we are no longer held hostage by Satan’s accusations!
