‘The External Word’


Understanding the importance of the external Word is not just important…it is VERY IMPORTANT in understanding how the gospel is best appropriated so that the sinner (you and I) might have the assurance of our salvation.

Jesus thought it so important that he commanded these external means of grace for us, so that we would not be left unto ourselves and our own feelings, or our own whatevers of being saved.

The Word of God ONLY comes to us ‘externally’.  So it’s a good thing that we understand how to appropriate it in the way that it is given.

There are a couple of related topics (it’s all related) discussed in this fairly short class on ‘the external Word’, so tune in and enjoy the fun.  It may be fun…but it’s serious fun:
