Law and Gospel

There is a great difference between law and gospel, works and grace, the letter and the Spirit; and between a legal commandment and a life-giving commandment. The former bids us work for life, the latter bids us live: “When thou wast in thy blood, I said unto thee, live.” At which command the sting of death flies, and life and immortality are brought to light.
