New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Peter also grasped the full content of the crucified and risen Jesus.  He say, "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us back to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit."  This is man's destiny:  Reconciliation.  "Be ye reconciled with God."  Therefore after the first Communion, Jesus prayed, "That they may be one with Us."  That has ever been the heavenly desire. -- B. v. Schenk, The Presence, p. 63.
