Martin Luther once had a dream in which Satan showed him a long list of sins that were recorded under Luther’s name. Luther looked carefully down the long list to see if there was anything recorded there that he had not done. After searching for some time he said to Satan, “Are these all of my sins?”
“No,” replied Satan.
“Then let me see them all,” said Luther. Satan left and after a short while returned with another long list. Again Luther carefully searched over the list to see if they were all of his sins. Convinced that they were, he again asked Satan, “And is that all?”
“Yes,” replied Satan, “it is all.”
“Then,” said Luther, “take your pen and write in red across the lists ‘The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.’ " 1 John 1:77But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1:7).
