Where the Holy Trinity is present and received in faith, there cannot
but be witness (martyría), mercy (díakonía) and life together
(koinōnía). These three reflect God’s very being as Creator, Redeemer
and Sanctifier, and encompass His holy and gracious will for all in
Christ Jesus, namely that all come to believe in and bear witness to
Christ, reflect divine compassion, and live together in forgiveness,
love and joy in the Church (see The Augsburg Confession 1).
This five-session study explores the biblical basis of WITNESS, MERCY, LIFE TOGETHER, the threefold emphasis of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Helpful explanations of Greek terms, and references to Bible passages addressing witness, mercy, and life together, are included.
