Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Therefore, let them fear, who do not feel their sin, but charge ahead with an impudent and proud heart, in sin without any regret, and without any repentance or amending of life. But the others, who feel their sin and repent, should not fear. For this table is prepared for the sake of these grieved and anxious hearts, so that they may find comfort and refreshment there. -- Blessed Martin Luther, Sermon for Easter Wednesday 1534 (House Postils II:52)
