New Lutheran Quote of the Day

It is in his body that Jesus offers the sacrifice. It is in his body that we draw near to God. The temple in which we now worship God is the body of our Lord Jesus Christ. The very body, born of Mary, crucified for us and raised from the dead is fed to us. We are created into his mystical body, joined to Christ the Head. In him and in this mystical body we worship God. —Dr. Kenneth Korby, "The Pastoral Office and the Priesthood of Believers" Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay? p. 354.
