New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Son of God did not become an angel but one of us.  We drew the greatest of all love from God, a mystery and magnitude of love that the Scriptures tell us surpassed the comprehension of the angels.  If it is a love the angels could not understand, we surely cannot.  Who can understand such a love that God as man should die for us rebellious and sinful people?  -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 297.
