Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

But what does it mean to sit at God's right hand?  We will not make a judgment on this on the basis of our own discretion.  Instead, we will get it out of Holy Scripture.  What the evangelist Mark states here about Christ ascending up to heaven and seating Himself at God's right hand, St. Paul explains in Ephesians 4:10 this way:  He who ascended is far above all heavens so that He fills all things. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, Sermon for Ascension, Postilla I:421
