Let us administer our office in the fear and reverence of God, that is, let us bring the doctrine of the Gospel to the hearers in humbleness of spirit, in the fear of God and in prayer. Then let us be proud in God, whose cause it is. And let us remain constantly in this fear and honor of God, and let us allow nothing to tear us from it.

Luther (W-T 2, No. 1488n5)
