Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Now reason cannot grasp how this takes place. But whoever believes, knows for a certainty that to him death will be like a spark of fire in the midst of the ocean, that is extinguished in a moment. God is almighty, he who believes is in God, therefore he is in life, and though he were in the midst of death.—Martin Luther, Homily for Trinity XVI, Church Postils
