New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The One who was on the Cross for us will be our judge.  He is the Son of Man.  "When the Son of Man comes."  When is that?  The final judgment.  When we stand before God, then it will be clear how tenderly, how generously He has brought us on our way through those dark times when everything went wrong, and we and our lives seemed widowed, worthless, God delaying, His seeming not to care, will then be seen as part of His wanting our good, readying us for larger gifts, the wholeness and fullness of our good, our salvation. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 240.
