It is not the greatness of our faith, but the greatness of God, which counts...

I have a feeling that there will be lots and lots of quotes on this blog coming out of this book in the next few months.  It's one of my text books relating to my theology papers I'm doing through Otago University.

Here's one for today from Luther noted in McGrath's book:

Even if my faith is weak, I still have exactly the same treasure and the same Christ as others.  There is no difference ... It is like two people, each of whom owns a hundred gold coins.  One may carry them around in a paper sack, the other in an iron chest.  But despite these differences, they both own the same treasure.  Thus the Christ who you and I own is one and the same, irrespective of the strength or weakness of your faith or mine.
