Luther: the priesthood of all Christians

Thursday, August 15, 2019
    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)
    See also Rom. 12:1; Heb. 13:15-16; 1 Pet. 2:4-5,9; Rev. 1:4-6; 5:9-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Speak, Lord, for Your church is listening to You.
