Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

In maintaining the teaching that salvation is all of grace, and that man is forgiven his sins and admitted into everlasting life solely because of what Christ has done for him, we must be careful not to exclude the most clear and emphatic teaching of Holy Scripture, that there are rewards, both in this life and in the life to come, promised to good works. -- H.E. Jacobs, *Elements of Religion* p. 196
