New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The first Christians also lived from nothing else than the daily forgiveness of their sins, as we confess in the Small Catechism... The holiness of the church is the holiness of Christ. We correctly understand what our text (Acts 2:41ff) tells us about what happened in the first church, the congregation of saints in Jerusalem, when we hear not the praise of men, but only "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord," the everlasting song of the church: "You only are holy; You only are Lord; You only...are most high."—Hermann Sasse, We Confess: the Church, p. 131.
