New Lutheran Quote of the Day

He doesn't stop sin by an act of almighty power, for that would mean killing every sinner.  He takes our sin on Himself and suffers it all, even to the agony of the cross, so sin may be forgiven and we may be changed and brought into the kingdom of God where He rules, not with a sword but with His love.  -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 328.
