Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

All agree that when the humiliation was finished and the infirmities had been laid aside in the glorification, these gifts which had been infused or given to the human nature of Christ because of the hypostatic union were now made the highest, the greatest, and completely perfect in supply, number, and degree, both in attributes as well as in activity; that is, in itself and and according to itself the humanity of Christ was augmented and adorned formally and habitually above all creatures in ineffable and incomprehensible light, wisdom, power, strength, courage, glory, honor, immortality, incapacity for suffering, brilliance, happiness, blessedness, and the other gifts of glorification. -- Blessed Martin Chemnitz, *Two Natures in Christ* p. 251
