Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

The Catechism says that those who know Christ’s forgiveness are “to thank God for such deliverance” (Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 1, Question and Answer 2). As a result, “With our whole lives we may show that we are thankful to God for his benefits, so that he may be praised through us, and that we may be assured of our faith by its fruits, and so that by our godly living our neighbors may be won over to Christ” (Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 32, Question and Answer 86).

Additional Prayers

A Prayer of Acclamation
There’s a wideness in your mercy, O God, and a kindness in your justice. Wider than the oceans and deeper than the seas, your mercy stretches from everlasting to everlasting. There is none like you, O God. Truly, none like you. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
