“The heart of man finds it difficult to believe that so great a treasure as the Holy Spirit is received by the mere hearing of faith. The hearer likes to reason like this: ‘Forgiveness of sins, deliverance from death, the gift of the Holy Spirit, everlasting life — these are grand things! If you want to obtain these priceless benefits, you must engage in correspondingly great efforts.’ And the devil says, ‘Amen.’” - Luther, Commentary Gal 3:2
