Luther on a Life of Repentance

Luther's first thesis from his Ninety-Five Theses:

"When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, 'Repent' [Matt. 4:17], he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance."

—Martin Luther, "Disputation on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences," in Luther's Works: Career of the Reformer I (vol. 31; Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1957), 25.
