Christ, our dear Lord and Savior, died once for our sin, as it is written in Romans 4 [:25] and 6 [:10], Hebrews 5 [:3] and 9 [:28]. Henceforth he will not die again for the sake of righteousness and truth, but rules as all-powerful Lord over every creature. If this be true, as Scripture continually testifies, what are we afraid of?
