Meditation on Repentance

. . . solemnly testifying to both Jews and Greeks of repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 20:21)

Pastor Spencer – It used to be, in the days before the coming of the Messiah, that the way to God was through the Jewish nation and observing the Law of Moses. Once Christ fulfilled that Law completely, and satisfied God’s righteousness and justice, the way to God is now the same for everyone; that is, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ. The only “chosen people” today are Believers, who have been chosen by God, brought to a realization of their sins, and sorrow over those sins by His Word, and given the free gift of faith through the Means of Grace. These are now part of God’s family, members of His eternal kingdom, regardless of race or nation. Praise God for His universal mercy!

Who Are We? - What is a Lutheran?

The answer to this question is simply this, “A Lutheran is a person who believes, teaches, and confesses all the truths of God’s Word as they are summarized and confessed in the Book of Concord.” The Book of Concord contains the Lutheran confessions of faith.

Perhaps you have attended an ordination of a pastor and heard him promise that he will perform the duties of his office in accord with the Lutheran Confessions. Also, when people are received into membership into a Lutheran congregation through confirmation they are asked if they confess the doctrine of the Confessional Lutheran Church as contained in the Book of Concord to be faithful and true.

These solemn promises indicate to us just how important the Lutheran Confessions are for our church. Let’s take a look at the various items contained in the Book of Concord and then see why the Lutheran Confessions are so important for being a Lutheran.

----------------------------------------------------

What is an “unconditional subscription” to the Confessions?

Confessional Lutheran pastors are required to “subscribe” unconditionally to the Lutheran Confessions because they are a pure exposition of the Word of God. This way our pastors and every member, is able to say simply, clearly, and without reservation or qualification what it is that he believes to be the truth of God’s Word.

An unconditional subscription is nothing more or less than the solemn declaration which an individual makes under oath that he accepts the doctrinal content of our Lutheran Confessions, because he recognizes the fact that they are in full agreement with Scripture and do not contradict Scripture on any point, whether of major or minor importance; and that he therefore heartily believes this divine truth and is determined to proclaim and live this doctrine.
