Thy Kingdom Come: An Excerpt from Thursday of Invocabit (1st Week of Lent)

“He provides for the soul through the body. You can’t wash a soul. So you wash the body with water in the Triune name of God, and the soul is thereby washed. We call that baptism. You can’t touch the soul or feed it apart from the body. So Jesus feeds our bodies with spiritual food, with what the soul needs to be strengthened and cleansed. He does not sit in heaven and think nice things toward us. He actually enters into creation. He speaks through human words, in a human voice. He feeds us when bread and wine become His body and blood, even as He washes us with water.”

-David H. Petersen, author of Thy Kingdom Come
