"You are going to face death some day. You are going to face that last moment, barring Christ's return, where you are going to be terrified of sin, death, and the devil. And at that point you are either going to say, 'I have lived the victorious life' or you are going to say, 'Dearest Jesus, forgive me! I am a beggar and a sinner!' I would say you either say the latter, or you will not spend eternity with Him in heaven."
--Pastor Matt Harrison, LCMS World Relief
