95 Theses: Thesis 94

by PastorWilliams on October 15th, 2017

“Christians are to be exhorted that they be diligent in following Christ, their Head, through penalties, deaths, and hell.”

While there are some who believe that Christians don’t need to have the Law preached to them, there is a definite need for it. While the Christian is a baptized saint, he is also a condemned sinner at the same time. The old man needs the Law as a mirror to show his sin. The new man needs the Law as a guide to illustrate the proper path along Jesus’ narrow Way upon which the Christian should follow the example of our Savior.

Jesus Himself commands Christians to follow Him. This can be seen by His call of the Apostles into their ministry but also for the lay Christian, as He said, “Whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple” (Luke 14:27). Bearing the Christian’s cross is following after the Law. Not in order to be justified. That already happened in Baptism. In order to be confident in the Christian faith as we will see more next week in the last thesis.
