New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Jesus Christ is the priest before God, he offers up the sacrifice of himself for our sake, in our place.  He alone does that, and only his doing it makes it sure and unfractionably complete.  As priest he does it for us, and in our place, before God.  It counts for us; nothing may be added as necessary to what He has done.  To suggest such a something deflects from him and denies that he alone, completely and surely, is our only Savior. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, CTM Vol. 61, No. 4, p. 280.
