New Lutheran Quote of the Day

What is done according to His mandate and institution is surely done by Him.  And what is done by Him is unshakably sure, and not only done by Him, but done in the way of the Gospel by Him, in the means of grace way of giving out His gifts, the gifts that the words say and impart:  holy baptism, holy absolution, holy communion, for whose service the Lord has put the mouth and hands of the holy ministry as His instrument for His doing of His Divine Service.  -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Logia VII:2, p. 26.
