Old Lutheran Quote of the Day
Finally, to deny one's self is to renounce one's own will.... Hence, the true disciple of Christ, renouncing his own will, follows the desires of God. Behold Christ, thy Savior; in the agony of His awful passion He lays His own will on the altar as a most pleasing sacrifice unto God; and so do thou offer up thine own will unto God, and thou shalt indeed accomplish that which Christ requires of thee as a disciple, the denial of thine own self. May Thy holy will, O Lord, be done on earth as it is in heaven. - Johann Gerhard, *Sacred Meditations* XXXI.
