New Lutheran Quote of the Day
You can only become human His way; never so long as you make your humanity the ultimate goal; only by losing our lives is life given to us. Come now to Christ giving to you. Come with all your hopes and aspirations, your piecemeal humanity, your uncertainties and your fears, your sin. Come to be totally embraced in His forgiveness, His accepting and enlivening you, so that means may never be mistaken for ends, becoming idols that enslave and destroy. Come to be made free and to receive the resources for living out your lives as Christ's men and women in the world. "If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." -- Dr. Norman Nagel, CTM, XLII, No. 8, p. 552.
