The Burden of the Ministry of the Word

'No one can understand the ministry of the Word who has not understood why the OT prophets call the 'word' a 'burden'. No one can understand it unless he knows what Jeremiah and Paul have understood:'Necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel' (1 Cor 9:16).'

From 'The Crisis of the Christian Ministry', in Lutheran Theological Journal (Adelaide, SA) 2.1 (May 1968), pp34-46.
