God Will Preserve His Church

"Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom."
LUKE 23:42
God Will Preserve His Church
We may fare poorly as earthly citizens as we face the enmity of the devil, who molests us in his kingdom, the world. What are we to do about this? It does not matter much. We must put up with it if the devil murders us through the pope, the Turk, or a pestilence. God will not forsake us, and we will receive an eternal refuge and home in heaven instead. God will preserve His church. This church may be narrow and small, but some Christians will always survive.

From Sermons on the Gospel of John, Chapters 1-4 (Luther's Works 22:209)
