Christ Has Done Enough For Me!
Romans 2:12-16 New International Version
12 All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. 13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. 14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.) 16 This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.

Luther: “[God will] reveal our innermost thoughts, so that there is no possibility to flee further inside and to a more private hiding place. [It is] as if God wanted to say: ‘See, it’s not I who am judging you, but I merely agree with your own judgment about yourself and acknowledge this judgment. If you cannot judge differently concerning your very own self, neither can I. Therefore, on the basis of the witness of your own thoughts and of your own conscience you are worthy of either heaven or hell.’ …[But] if the heart of a believer in Christ accuses him and reprimands him and witnesses against him that he has done evil, he will immediately turn away from evil and will take his refuge in Christ and say, ‘Christ has done enough for me.’
