Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Cross casts its shadow forward in the morning, as well as backward in the evening of this world's history. Every event of the old world, if it could be read, was a prophesy of Christ's Coming, and a link in the chain, whereby God was bringing to fallen men the riches of His love. Everything was preparatory to the Kingdom of God. -- H. E. Jacobs, *Elements of Religion* p. 118
