Martin Luther on the Bible and Communion with God

Martin Luther was adamant that we must never get “beyond” God’s words in the Bible or we can’t know whom we are conversing with . “We must first hear the Word, and then afterwards the Holy Ghost works in our hearts; he works in the hearts of whom he will, and how he will, but never without the Word.”

-- Tim Keller, "Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God" (p. 57). Penguin Group US. Kindle Edition.
