Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

On the basis of Christ's ordinance we daily ask for the forgiveness of sins because we know that sin still dwells in our flesh and because it daily tempts us to fall and quite often also impels us to fall. Meanwhile, by faith we claim that through Christ we obtain forgiveness of sins and that through His blood the filth that clings to us is being washed away. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, On the Church, p. 557.
