The Proclamation of Law & Gospel

 

Sermons are not oratory; they are proclamation of Jesus Christ's Word of Truth. He gave his Office of the Holy Ministry to proclaim (kerusso) repentance and forgiveness to all nations (Luke 24:47). Thus, hearers should not expect to be entertained or given life-application advice, but they should expect to hear the preaching of Christ crucified for us and our salvation (1 Cor. 2:2). This is the preaching of God's Law (which shows us our sin) and Gospel (which shows us our Savior.) In proclaiming Law and Gospel, every pastor is exhorted to  "rightly divide the Word of Truth," calling sinners to repentance and proclaiming their salvation in Jesus Christ and him crucified. To that end, cherish these sermons, for the Word of Truth is for you!
