Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Christ is the Savior of all people [1 Tim 4:10] with regard to merit and acquisition, because He merited salvation for all people without exception with His suffering and death; and He is the Savior only of believers with regard to fruit and application, because they alone are rendered partakers of salvation through faith. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, On Christ, p. 7.
