Lutheran Quote of the Day: Luther on the Kingdom of God

Yes, yes. I realize I haven't posted an original in almost two weeks. I promise, I will post tomorrow. For now, here is another good one from Luther:

"The kingdom of God comes...only through the gospel and faith in God, through which hearts are cleansed, comforted, and pacified. For the Holy Spirit fills a man's heart with love and knowledge of God and unites his spirit with God's Spirit. As a result his mind is changed so that he wills and desires, seeks and loves, whatever God wills."

-Martin Luther, WA 15:725
