Old Lutheran Quote of the Day
When I turn my gaze to You upon the cross, I cannot count the witnesses of my comfort. Your crown of thorns bears witness that I will be given the crown of glory. Your opened side bears witness to You and to Your Father's genuine, heartfelt faithfulness. Your five most holy wounds bear witness that I am a child of God. Your death bears witness that I shall live. Your tomb bears witness that in the grave I will but rest. Your resurrection and ascension bear witness that I will pass from the grave to eternal joy. O Lord Jesus, in You I have all that I need for life and death. -- Blessed Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God III/IV, p. 220.
