Luther quotes

Therefore, to destroy such works of ours as well as the Old Adam in us, God overwhelms us with those things which move us to anger, with many sufferings which rouse us to impatience, and last of all, even with death and the abuse of the world. By means of these he seeks nothing else but to drive out of us anger, impatience, and unrest, and to perfect his own work in us, that is, his peace.” Martin Luther, Treatise on Good Works, LW, AE, 44:77
