Barth Bite for Saturday February 20, 2016

“The Lord of speech is also the Lord of our hearing.  The Lord who gives the Word is also the Lord who gives faith.  The Lord of our hearing, the Lord who gives faith, the Lord by whose act the openness and readiness of man for the Word are true and actual, not another God but the one God in this way, is the Holy Spirit.”  – Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics, Volume I.1 The Doctrine of the Word of God, page 182
