Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

For the ship of Baptism never breaks, because (as we have said) it is God's ordinance and not our work. But it does happen, indeed, that we slip and fall out of the ship. Yet if anyone falls out, let him see to it that he swims and clings to the ship until he comes into it again and lives in it, as he had done before. -- Blessed Martin Luther, *The Large Catechism* IV:82
