Martin Luther on Romans 12

“…those who are led by the Spirit of God are flexible in mind and thinking.  The right hand of God leads them wonderfully where they neither think nor want to go, but above all thought.  And when they are led in this way, the will of God seems to go against them sharply and displeasingly and almost desperately.  However, in this leading they show themselves as humbly resigned and enduring all things in faith, and even when they may have been most harshly tested, then they begin to learn how good this will has been, even though hidden, and even misunderstood when it was being fulfilled.”
