New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Certainly the holiness of the church is due entirely to her salvific unity with Christ, not to any imagined eruptions of excellence from within the "human material" of Adam's fallen race. The unity with Christ and with others in His body, moreover, is mediated by His holy and "holy-making" instruments of salvation.—Prof. Kurt Marquart, The Church, p. 25.
