New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Paul's argument is as follows.  God has joined both Jews and Gentiles together as his people in Christ.  They are therefore to live in harmony with each other, so that they may all together glorify him with one voice.  For Paul corporate solidarity is both the presupposition for corporate praise and the consequence of it.  Christ's body sings with one voice to God the Father.  -- Dr. John Kleinig, "Singing with Grace in our Hearts" Teach Me Thy Way, O Lord, p. 110.
