HERE I STAND.  HERE YOU STAND!

 “So follow Daniel … Martin Luther … the believers of ages past who have stood firm on Scripture alone, by faith alone, and by God’s grace alone no matter what the cost. Spread the Word. Preach the truth. Defend your faith. Pass it on to your children. God will bless you and keep you firm in the one true faith. With that comfort you can proclaim, ‘Here I stand. I cannot do otherwise. God help me. Amen!’” Rev. Peter Sulzle, St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, Redwood Falls, Minnesota
