When we speak of the means of grace, we have in mind certain divinely appointed media by which God earnestly desires to, and actually does, offer, convey, and seal to sinners the merits secured for all men by His dear Son, our divine Mediator and Redeemer. That is the Lutheran definition of the means of grace. And concerning this definition there is no doubt or discrepancy among our Lutheran dogmaticians.
