Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

He knows us to be such sheep as are weak, sick and broken. That is: it does not make any difference in His regard for them that they are weak and sickly; He does not reject them on that account; but He pities and heals them, even though they be so diseased that the whole world conclude they are not His sheep. -- Blessed Martin Luther, Homily for Good Shepherd Sunday (Church Postil III:30)

An excellent quote. We need to remember, firmly, that God does not need to see us as sinless before He is utterly and completely good to us.
