Quote of the Day – From Martin Luther’s “Large Catechism”

The First Commandment:  “You shall have no other gods before me.”

“To have a god is nothing else than to trust and believe him with our whole heart….To have God, you see, does not mean to lay hands upon him, or put him into a purse, or shut him up in a chest.  We lay hold of him when our heart embraces him and clings to him.  To cling to him with all our heart is nothing else than to entrust ourselves to him completely.”
