The Lord over life and death this day in 1555 called Justus Jonas the Lord out of this mortal and sinful life to die only to rise again when Jesus Christ comes again in glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end! To get to know a bit more about Justus Jonas, who was another Lutheran Reformer read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justus_Jonas
