New Lutheran Quote of the Day

It is through the Word-made-flesh, full of grace and truth (Jn 1:14) and in Whom dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Col. 2:9), that we actually become "partakers of the divine nature" (2 Pet. 1:4) Since God is love (1 John 4:8, 16), the fellowship of the church arises out of the divine love and grows toward ever fuller participation in it and ever greater exercise in that responding love, which the divine love kindles in us.—Prof. Kurt Marquart, The Church, p. 42.
