Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

O faithful soul, in wonder and amazement adore the marvelous compassion of thy Savior.  Not only does He receive us who were His enemies into His grace, but He also forgives our sins, freely justifies us, brings us into the possession of our heavenly inheritance, makes us like the holy angels, yes, even like unto Himself.  O the blessed citizenship of the saints! -- Johann Gerhard, Sacred Meditation, XLVII
