New Lutheran Quote of the Day

God's "alien work" of smashing all smugness and self-righteousness by His Law is not done for its own sake, but for the sake of God's "proper," life-giving work through the Gospel. The Law prepares the way for the Gospel, and the Gospel presupposes that the Law has done, and is doing, its work.—Prof. Kurt Marquart, The Church, pp. 54,55.
