Excerpt: ... THE MEANS OF GRACE. 1. The Holy Scriptures. In the preceding chapter we spoke of the B1ble only as the revelation of divine truth. It is the word of God and shows us wha.t God wants us to believe and do in order that we may be His true children and be saved in the end. For Protestants and for Lutherans especially the word of God serves another important purpose. The word of God is for us a Means of Grace. That is, through the word of God the Holy Spirit leads us to a knowledge of the truth, to repentance and to faith, and imparts to us forgiveness of sins, righteousness, peace, the powers of a new life and final salvation. This is certainly making very much of the word of God. If that Word is the means by which we get all these things, then indeed it should be most precious to us. What proof have we that this is so? The following passages should satisfy us on this point: "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth." Rom. 1, 16. "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Rom. 10, 17. "The preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it 1s the power of God." I Cor. 1, T8. "For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." I Cor. 1, 21. "Being born again, not of corruptable seed, but of incorruptable, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever." I Pet. 1, 23. "For though you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the Gospel." I Cor. 4, 15. "Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures." ...
