One Little Word

I am reminded of the well-known line from Luther’s hymn “A Mighty Fortress is Our God”: One little word shall fell him. Only this time, it wasn’t a word which felled anyone, but a word which brought him back from his fall. Here’s the video which tells the story of the word and the man. (I apologize in advance if an advertisement autoplays when you load this page.)

  1. Wow!

    “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” is one of my favorites from Martin Luther or any hymn writer, and this was an interesting reversal on that line.

    It just goes to show that where there remains a shred of life, we should not give up.

    The caliber of our heroes in uniform is phenomenal, and with some help from God, it’s amazing what can happen.

  2. Bob,

    Thanks. Even in English, Luther’s hymn is powerful. My sister tells me its better in German.

    It would appear as though the young man was not finished with whatever has been planned for him. I’m sure he is grateful for a chance to keep going.
