"To appreciate and use Baptism aright, we must draw strength and comfort from it when our sins or conscience oppress us, and we must retort, 'But I am baptized!' No greater jewel, therefore, can adorn our body and soul than baptism which no other kind of life and no work on earth can acquire."

This quote from Martin Luther seems to mean more and more to me these days. The devil is always right with his accusations & likes to remind us of things we would rather forget. If I go by how I feel, the devil would win and have me condemned, ashamed, guilty... in a second. I'm so glad we have real things to come back at him with & uncles and aunts who are faithful to remind us.
