New Lutheran Quote of the Day

As soldiers of Christ, we engage in defensive rather than offensive warfare. Therefore, we are appointed to guard duty. That's how Paul envisages our involvement in the cosmic battle. -- John Kleinig, *Grace Upon Grace* p. 259

Another "envisage"! My pastor pointed out his love of the word, and now I keep seeing it. I'm starting to think maybe Kleinig is the visual meditator. :)
