What a Beautiful Sermon!

No, I'm not talking about the sermon I preached today, but the hymn, "Salvation Unto Us Has Come," which was the Hymn of the Day this morning.  As we were singing this beautiful hymn, the thought occurred to me, "Why do I need to preach?  This hymn is a beautiful sermon in and of itself, and I could hardly improve upon it."  Everything you need to know about our salvation in Christ is found within the text of this beauty.  Law and Gospel, sin and grace, faith and works, conversion, Baptism, Christ's active and passive obedience, the Holy Trinity - all covered!  Click here and check it out.  It would be most beneficial for the Christian to memorize the sermon preached by this hymn.
