Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Christ, our dear Lord, voluntarily bore this great agony for the glory of his heavenly Father and for our benefit, so that henceforth we might have a champion over against anguish when our appearance becomes strained, our eyes dark and gloomy, our tongue speechless, and our head cannot think; then we must hold to this man who overcame this terror by absorbing it into Himself. -- Blessed Martin Luther, House Postils I:385
