“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O death, where is your victory? 
O death, where is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.-1 Corinthians 15:55-57

With you, in Christ's service,
President Rast

I had Prof. Muller for a couple of classes at the seminary.  My memory of him was of a man full of energy and enthusiasm (in a good way).  And the diagrams!  Flow charts and boxes.  I recall, after one of the class sessions, the students jokingly asking each other: "Are you in the box?" (meaning salvation, as he had diagrammed it).  Oh, and his teaching adult Bible class at Ascension Lutheran Church, where he had membership.  Good stuff.
