Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Thus, as people doubly blessed we will not conclude our Easter festival. Instead, we will, from now on, daily keep it, daily eat our Passover Lamb in faith, daily purge the leaven of sin from our hearts, daily eat the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth, and daily celebrate our resurrection with Christ and our new walk with Him. If, then, we were to die today or tomorrow, we would die in the Lord and by this blessed death, we would enter with Him into a life of eternal glory. May Jesus Christ, our precious Passover Lamb, help us all to do this through the power of His bloody sacrifice and His victorious resurrection. To Him be thanks, praise, glory, and honor, both in time and in eternity! -- C. F. W. Walther, *God Grant It!* p. 357,358
