New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Luther reiterated a basic element in the New Testament preaching when he said that the preacher must be able to say of his sermon, "Haec dixit Dominus," "This the Lord has spoken." If we cannot say this, he has no business preaching. -- Earnest Koenker, *Worship in Word and Sacrament* p. 57

[Luther citation from WA 51,517]
