We Shall Not Finish Our Appreciation in This Life Nor in the Yonder Life

There are few of us who know and understand this article [the doctrine of justification], and I treat it again and again because I greatly fear that after we have laid our head to rest, it will soon be forgotten and will again disappear…And indeed we cannot grasp or exhaust Christ, the eternal Righteousness, with one sermon or thought; for to learn how to appreciate Him is an everlasting lesson which we shall not be able to finish either in this or in yonder life.

– Martin Luther

as quoted by Sproul, R.C.; Grace Unknown: The Heart of Reformed Theology; Baker Books; Grand Rapids, MI; copyright 1997; p. 78
