New Lutheran Quote of the Day

But if anyone wonders why we should receive forgiveness twice, what it means that one should be absolved of sins and then still receive the Sacrament for the forgiveness of sins, to such a one we may answer—Luther caught the spirit of it—"You have not yet pondered how great is the weight of sin."—Hermann Sasse, We Confess: the Sacraments, p. 131.
