New Lutheran Quote of the Day

It is his [the Lord's] will to do this work of his through his church. Where the church is, there are the keys for the forgiveness of sins. Where there is no sin, there is no need of this. But sinners have need of them. They are given for sinners for their good and salvation, and they may seek and find them with the bishops and churches as often as is their need.—Dr. Norman Nagel, "When Caesar Smiles and Christ Judges" in Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay?, p. 216.

I have come not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance. Hence, I shall strive to keep Lent!
