New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Wherever the Gospel is rightly proclaimed and the sacraments are rightly administered, that is, "according to the Gospel," there Christ the Lord is actually present.  There He Himself calls us to repentance and faith, forgives us our sins, and incorporates us into His church, the congregation of justified sinners.  Only from this point of view can the essence of the church be understood. -- Hermann Sasse, *We Confess: Jesus Christ* pp. 33, 34.
