Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

He *bought* them for God. They were gone, lost from God Himself. There was something about them that could never, not in eternity's eternity, unite them with the Lord God. If God took them to His breast, they must perish. Christ, however, *bought them* with His blood. He paid what it cost to fuse God with the sinner: death. The sacrificial Lamb was slain. God willed it! This is the essence of the nature of God. -- Bishop Bo Giertz, *To Live with Christ* p. 487
