Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Your sins and manifold trespasses ought indeed to make you very sorrowful, but not dejected. Even if they are many, know that more more grace is present with God and much more mercy. If they are great, remember that Christ's merit is greater... This great mercy of God toward men ought not to cause man to sin more, but to love God more and more deeply. - Johann Arndt, *True Christianity* p. 181
