I Need The Gospel Beat Into My Head

“Here I must take counsel of the gospel. I must hearken to the gospel, which teacheth me, not what I ought to do, (for that is the proper office of the law,) but what Jesus Christ the Son of God hath done for me : to wit, that He suffered and died to deliver me from sin and death. The gospel willeth me to receive this, and to believe it. And this is the truth of the gospel. It is also the principal article of all Christian doctrine, wherein the knowledge of all godliness consisteth. Most necessary it is, therefore, that we should know this article well, teach it unto others, and beat it into their heads continually.” - Martin Luther

Pulled this great Luther quote on the Gospel from an article on a seemingly unrelated subject (choosing a church) at Part of the Story. I need all the help I can get to beat the Gospel into my head!
