You Settle with Him, Devil!

Little is gained against the devil with a lengthy disputation; but a brief word and reply such as this is effective: 'I am a Christian, of the same flesh and blood as my Lord Christ, the Son of God. You settle with Him, devil!' Such a retort would soon make him depart.

--Martin Luther, preaching on John 1:14, 'and the word became flesh,' in LW 22:106
