Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Another Von Schenk:

"Our greatest problem is our sin, perhaps the little sins, respectable sins, these sad betrayals of our Lord in our daily life.  How they defeat us! To struggle against them is not the solution. We have tried this. Here again, we must surrender to Christ in faith, and then we have the certainty. Of myself I cannot do it, but for me to live is Christ; Christ in me, and I can do all things through Him - and in that moment we live the victorious life." - *The Presence* p. 163
