Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Therefore it is necessary that in those who are to be helped by this eating [of the Eucharist] there be penitence and fear of God, which is terrified by the contemplation of sin and of the wrath of God against sins and puts off the purpose to do evil. Faith also is necessary, that seeks and accepts the remission of sins in the promise. - Blessed Martin Chemnitz, *Examination of the Council of Trent* II:238
