Old Lutheran Quote of the Day
One must be careful not to make the Order of Grace a staircase on which one gradually moves up to God. Likewise, it is not a school with deﬁnitively separate classes, where one takes one course at a time, one after the other, in order then to graduate and be moved up to the next level. It is rather a descent, a process of impoverishment, in which God takes away from man one after the other his false grounds of comfort. At its heart it is a description of how God’s love overcomes the obstacles and breaks down the dams which prevent the divine grace from freely pouring itself over a life. - Bishop Bo Giertz, *Life By Drowning* - choice reading available here. Thanks so much, Tapani!
