Ecclesiastical Law and Discipline : A Charge to the Clergy of the Protestant Episcopal Church of Virginia (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Ecclesiastical Law and Discipline: A Charge to the Clergy of the Protestant Episcopal Church of Virginia It being admitted by all that God hath appointed this as one of the instruments by which we are to make full trial of our ministry in edifying the body of Christ, that is, building up the faithful for heaven, we must, of course, acknowledge the duty of its use, nor can we expect the appropriate blessing without it. The same God who has enjoined and promised to bless the faithful preaching of the word, and holy administration of the sacraments, has appointed this to be used with them, and his word must not be broken, and thus all parts maimed and weakened in their operation. Some good may doubtless be done by the parts thus separated, especially if they be separated through no fault of our own, but of unavoidable necessity. Faith ful preaching of itself may effect much.' Fervent, effectual prayer may avail much. The reverent administration of ordinances may commend them to many, and be the means of grace. But the Special effects of all these may be greatly hindered for want of this other instrument, while the partic ular blessing assigned to this may be lost by its neglect.
