Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Those who trust in their own righteousness and holiness seek salvation in themselves, but I, who find in me nothing worthy of eternal life, flee to Thee as my Savior. Save me, for I am condemned; have mercy on me, for I am unrighteous; acquit me, for I am under accusation of sin.—Blessed Johann Gerhard, Sacred Meditations #4.
