Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

What greater honor could be paid us than this, that our faith in Christ entitles us to be called His brethren and coheirs, that our prayer is to be like His, that there is really no difference except that our prayers must originate in Him and be spoken in His name if they are to be acceptable and if He is to bestow this inheritance and glory on us. Aside from this, He makes us equals to Himself in all things; He and our prayer must be one, just as His body is ours and His members are ours. -- Martin Luther, AE 24:407
