See To It That You Remain In God’s Word Like A Child In The Cradle

See only that you pay heed to God’s Word and remain in it, like a child in the cradle. If you let go of it for a moment, then you fall out of it. This is the devil’s sole aim, to tear people out of it and to cause them to measure God’s will and work by human reason.

—Martin Luther, The Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ (1526) (HT: Chad Vegas)
