October 16, 2011 - Michealmastide 3 [Twenty-Second Sunday after Trinity]

The following reading from the CONCORDIA edition of the Book of Concord is for the Gospel, Matthew 18:21-35 for the Michealmastide 3 [Twenty-Second Sunday after Trinity], October 16, 2011.

It is from Augsburg Confession, Article VI.

He who believes in Christ as Savior from sin and the giver of life, having freely received forgiveness, also freely gives it. This is the will of God and the good work He has given us to do in Christ Jesus.

A READING FROM THE BOOK OF CONCORDMICHEALMASTIDE 3 [TWENTY-SECOND SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY]
AUGSBURG CONFESSIONNEW OBEDIENCE

1 Our churches teach that this faith is bound to bring forth good fruit [Galatians 5:22-23]. It is necessary to do good works commanded by God [Ephesians 2:10], because of God's will. We should not rely on those works to merit justification before God. 2 The forgiveness of sins and justification is received through faith. The voice of Christ testifies, "So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty' " (Luke 17:10). 3 The Fathers teach the same thing. Ambrose says, "It is ordained of God that he who believes in Christ is saved, freely receiving forgiveness of sins, without works, through faith alone."
