What Luther Says about the Gifts of the Spirit

“The abundance and the happiness in the Land of the Promise are the riches of the gifts of the Spirit, the treasures of wisdom and knowledge given us in Christ, where we dwell safely and richly in every blessing of heaven (1 Cor. 1:4–5). Here it is necessary that we be not puffed up as though we were satiated, but that we gratefully bless God, who has given all these things to those who were not only undeserving but even cursed and lost under the poverty of sin” (LW 9:97–98).
