Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Once again we learn what the Gospel is about. It comes to us as a gift, but a gift that has radical consequences in every aspect of our life. We don't make ourselves pure, worthy, sincere, and loving. It begins with Jesus loving us, regardless how impure and unworthy we may be. That love takes hold of us. We come to faith in Him. We become His. Now that whole life - the life we live with Him - begins in earnest. -- Bishop Bo Giertz *To Live With Christ* p. 460
