The Priesthood of Believers by George H. Gerberding

“Luther taught that every true believer is a spiritual priest, is as near to the great Head of the Church as any official priest can be, and is equally entitled to the promise and gift of the Holy Ghost. He may exercise priestly functions among his fellow men and ought to do what he can to promote their well-being.

“This teaching of Luther was calculated to awaken a joyous consciousness and energy in the common Christian calling.

– Pastor Gerberding, from Chapter 2
