STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT: Rev. 14:6 - "Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth." During the Reformation this text was used to refer to Luther's ministry and the Lutheran message: we have an eternal Gospel to proclaim. Christ has freed us from our sins without any works on our part. We are saved by grace alone. And, ironically enough, Luther said this should make him the "apostle of works" because once we are freed by grace, we are truly free to serve God in works that flow from thankfulness and praise.
