The Sum Of The Gospel

"The Sum Of The Gospel. Johannes Brenz. This is the sum of the entire gospel. The Son possesses all the good things of his heavenly Father. Now the good things of the Father are the Holy Spirit, righteousness, eternal life, judgment. Therefore, those who believe in the Son are made together with the Son co-heirs of the Father's goods. They possess eternal life, conquering sin, death, and hell. And they judge the world, as Paul states, "Do you knot know that the saints will judge the world?" But those who do not believe remain in death and under the wrath of God which is their lot because of Adam's disobedience. This most noble sermon of the Baptist about Christ should be repeated over and over again in the depths of one's soul. For it exhibits Christ and explains everything as clearly as possible so that we might know what great goods and treasure we possess through faith.

"The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him" John 3:35-36
