Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

But now, since God has taken my salvation out of my hands into his, making it depend on his choice and not mine, and has promised to save me, not by my own work or exertion but by his grace and mercy, I am assured and certain both that he is faithful and that he will not lie to me, and also that he is too great and powerful for any demons or any adversities to be able to break him or snatch me from him.  -- Blessed Martin Luther, *Bondage of the Will*
