Modern Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Lord has taken away that in which the devil trusted. He has teaken away the Law and justice and replaced them with mercy and sacrifice. The devil’s strength, that by which he held us captive, was our sin. But the Lord forgives sins through the sacrifice of the Son. His greater strength is His love and His mercy. The devil’s strength and armor are taken away. The demons are exiled and driven out, and mute men speak.
