The Power and Sufficiency of God's Word

"God's Word needs not the embellishment of human arts. It is not a thing that must be preached with human aids 'to make it go,' but it is the eternal truth, a two-edged sword, powerful, living, and life-giving. It has the power to enlighten the sin-darkened mind of natural man, to break down all stubborn opposition of man's natural heart, causing it to see Jesus as the only Savior from sin."

-- Louis Wessel, Sermons and Addresses on Fundamentals (St. Louis: Concordia, 1918) p. 22.
