Luther: the priesthood of all Christians

Friday, January 8, 2010
    Commemoration of Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, and Pete Fleming, martyrs, Ecuador, 1956
    Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his name.
    —Hebrews 13:15 (NIV)
    Indeed, all Christians are priests, and all priests are Christians. Worthy of anathema is any assertion that a priest is anything else than a Christian.
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546), Church and Ministry II, as v. XL of Works of Martin Luther, v. XL, Concordia Pub. House, 1986, p. 19 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, speak, for Your church is listening to You.
