Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Behold, this then is the Christian's justification before God, that Christ goes to the Father, that is, He suffers for us and rises again, and reconciles us to the Father, so that for His sake we receive forgiveness of sins and grace. There is nothing of our work or merit, but it is all because of His going to the Father, which He did for our sake.—Martin Luther, Sermons from 1545
