Power of the Word

When the evangelion is preached, the Spirit of God entereth into them which God hath ordained and appointed unto eternal life, and openeth their inward eyes, and worketh belief in them. When the woeful consciences taste how sweet a thing the bitter death of Christ is, how merciful and loving God is through Christ’s purchasing and merits, they begin to love again and to consent to the law of God, how that it is good, and ought to be taken so, and that God is righteous which made it.

-William Tyndale (preface to the 1525 New Testament) quoted by

Carl Trueman in “Reformation: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow”
