Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The renewal consists in this: that the Holy Spirit enlightens us, sanctifies us, works a new motivation in our understanding, will, and heart. With His power, He stifles the old man within us, crucifies the flesh with its lusts; and, contrariwise, puts on us the new man.—Johann Gerhard, Schola Pietatis, p. 185.
