The Ministry of the Church

There is a new roundtable discussion underway at the Book of Concord blog site. Come on over and talk about Article V of the Augsburg Confession: “So that we may obtain this faith,
the ministry of teaching the Gospel and administering the Sacraments
was instituted. Through the Word and Sacraments, as through
instruments, the Holy Spirit is given [John 20:22]. He works faith,
when and where it pleases God [John 3:8], in those who hear the good
news that God justifies those who believe that they are received into
grace for Christ’s sake. Our churches condemn the Anabaptists and
others who think that through their own preparations and works the Holy
Spirit comes to them without the external Word.”
