Walther Quote of the Day

As a rule, most of the biographies of the great theologians have not been published and will not be known except in eternity. If we could know their stories now, we would probably observe that all those great men became great only after previously being made small and worthless. They became great men in the kingdom of God—acknowledged as His great instruments—only after being freed from their anguish and distress, after they started to believe the Gospel, and after become new men.
