New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Everything depends on the recognition that in Jesus Christ time and eternity have become one, that eternity enters time, that God's revelation takes place in the world, that God became man.  This is the miracle of God's revelation in Christ:  The finite is capable of receiving the infinite, time is capable of receiving eternity, this age is capable of receiving the age to come. -- Hermann Sasse, *We Confess:  Jesus Christ* p. 26.
