“The work of God that we are to do is to believe in the Savior and confess Him before men. This is our high calling, and our great work is its fulfillment. It is vain to speak of doing the will of the Lord when we neither believe in Christ ourselves nor exert our powers to lead our fellow men to such faith, through which alone sinners can be saved. Let your light shine before men to their salvation and the Savior’s glory. Then you will live to some purpose in the world and His blessing will be upon you in time and in eternity. — Matthias Loy
Matthias Loy (1828-1915) is a theological giant of American Lutheranism. He served as president of the Joint Synod of Ohio, the Columbus Seminary and Capital University, and edited the Lutheran Standard and the Columbus Theological Magazine. In 1881 he withdrew the Joint Synod from the Synodical Conference as a result of Walther’s teaching about predestination. Many of Matthias Loy’s books are available in Lutheran Library editions.
