Heidelberg Catechism

Lord’s Day 39

104. What does God require in the fifth commandment? 

That I show all honor, love, and faithfulness to my father and mother, and to all in authority over me, submit myself with due obedience to all their good instruction and correction, and also bear patiently with their infirmities, since it is God’s will to govern us by their hand. 

Apostles Creed

  I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.  And in Jesus Christ, His only-begotten Son, our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy, universal Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Lord’s Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Blessed to Be a Blessing!

Psalm 67


Proposition: It is an amazing fact that God is determined to bless sinful, rebellious creatures in spite of their sin. While commanded to “ask, seek, and knock” (Mat. 7:7), we must keep in mind that His answer to our prayers has more to do with His purposes than ours (Mat. 6:10). All that we have and are belong to Him (1 Cor. 6:20). 

1. Ask for God’s blessings

2. Remember the purpose of God’s blessings

3. Consider the results of God’s blessing
