Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Whoever in his alarm over sin, does not wait until the hour of his death, but instead recognizes the magnitude of his sin and his worthiness of condemnation, can be led by the Holy Ghost, through the Gospel, to Christ. Then, by the power of faith, he will be strengthened daily so as to kill all sin in himself, crucifying his fleshly desires and walking in truth and righteousness. Such a person has protection against all accusations of his conscience, and peace and rest for his soul. —C. F. W. Walther,  God Grant It! p. 615-16.
