New Lutheran Quote of the Day
Our log is not only so large but also so near to us that it blocks our vision and we do not even see it. Jesus is the one who gives sight to the blind. He reaches out His hand to our log and pulls it out. "This must go. I want you to see." Jesus takes the logs out of our eyes. He drags them to Calvary, and on the timber that blinds and kills, He is killed. Jesus dies for our sins, and the wood we have supplied becomes, by His death, a declaration of that sin's forgiveness. When the logs from our eyes have been through Calvary, we see. -- Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, page 170.
