Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Accordingly, having peace in Him [our Lord] means nothing else than this: he who has Christ's Word in his heart becomes so bold and unafraid that he can scorn and defy the devil's wrath and raging. This was demonstrated by the holy martyrs, yes, even by young maidens like SS. Agatha and Agnes, who faced their torment joyfully, as though they were going to a dance, and even mocked their angry tyrants. -- Blessed Martin Luther, *Sermons on John* AE 24:420
