New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Jesus' death, the ultimate horror of all history, for your sins.  If you can face that, then there is nothing you cannot face, nothing you have to shut out or pretend isn't there in all the hideous, twisted evil we can see about us.  There is no misery that goes deeper than the Cross.  The Crucified One is there and deeper down still.  Everything that would destroy us Jesus has faced, and it did not destroy Him nor does it destroy those who are His.  -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 231.
