Walther Quote of the Day

Therefore, if you want to come to God and be saved, you must throw yourself down before Him with all your sins, lament your misery, and call upon Him for mercy. Then His Holy Spirit will comfort you and work true faith in your heart. Through the faith that dwells in you, He will pour out His love that you will taste and experience. But know this: If you do not remain in love, you also will not remain in faith. You must allow the heavenly plant of love to take root in you so it can grow and produce its fruit. If love ceases in you, God will withdraw from you, for God is love. Forsaking love means forsaking God, for ‘God is love, and whoever abides n love abides in God, and God abides in him.’
