Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

If we eat Him spiritually, through the Word He abides in us spiritually in our souls; if one eats Him physically He abides in us physically and we in Him. As we eat Him, He abides in us and we in Him. For He is not digested or transformed but ceaselessly He transforms us, our soul into righteousness, our body into immortality. So the ancient fathers spoke of the physical eating. --Blessed Martin Luther (AE 37:132)
