Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

How does one come to faith?  I will tell you.  Our Lord Jesus said, "Peace be with you.  Behold, My hands, etc."  [In other words, he is saying] Look, man, I am the only one who has taken away your sins and redeemed you, etc.; now be at peace.  -- Blessed Martin Luther, cited in Today's Treasury reading (June 24).
