Just Go On Preaching: A Word From Martin Luther

While studying for a sermon on Acts 4:23-31 on the early church's prayer for boldness, I read through Steve Lawson's helpful book The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther. In the conclusion of his final chapter, we find the following encouraging word from the great reformer:
This is Christ's commission: 'Go therefore, just go on preaching; do not worry about who will listen; let Me worry about that. The world will be against you; do not let that trouble you. Nevertheless, there will be those who will listen to you and follow. You do not know them now, but I know them already. You preach, and let Me manage. -116*

*Quote cited as coming from Martin Luther, Luther Works, vol 51, xx.
