Lutheran Quote for Today

“It is not we who are able to maintain the church, nor could those before us, nor will those who come after us be able to do so.  It is only He who says, ‘Lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.’ It has always been He, is He now, and will always be He.  As it is written in Hebrews 13, ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.’  And Revelation 1, ‘… who is and who was and who is to come.’  He is the Man.  That is His name, which belongs to no other man, nor may it be given to any other.”   –Martin Luther
