Luther on Romans 12

"Man (the Christian) is always in the condition of nakedness, always in the state of becoming, always in the state of potentiality, always in the condition of activity. He is always in sin and always in justification. He is always a sinner, but also always repentant and so always righteous. We are in part sinners, and in part righteous, and so nothing else than penitents."

--Martin Luther, Comentary on Romans, J. Theodore Mueller, Trans. (Grand Rapids: Zondervan/Kregel, 1954/76) p. 168.
