Weekly Catechism for 2018 (Heidelberg 1563): LORD’S DAY 44

113. What is required in the tenth commandment?
That not even the least inclination or thought against any of God’s commandments ever enter into our heart; but that, with our whole heart, we continually hate all sin, and take pleasure in all righteousness.

114. Can those who are converted to God keep these commandments perfectly?
No: but even the holiest men, while in this life, have only a small beginning of this obedience; yet so, that with earnest purpose they begin to live, not only according to some, but according to all the commandments of God.

115. Why then doth God so strictly enjoin upon us the ten commandments, since in this life no one can keep them?
First, that all our life long, we may learn more and more to know our sinful nature, and so the more earnestly seek forgiveness of sins and righteousness in Christ; secondly, that we may continually strive, and beg from God the grace of the Holy Ghost, so as to become more and more changed into the image of God, till we attain finally to full perfection after this life.

112. What is required in the ninth commandment? 
That I bear false witness against no one; wrest no one’s words; be no backbiter, or slanderer; join in condemning no one unheard and rashly; but that I avoid, on pain of God’s heavy wrath, all lying and deceit, as being the proper works of the devil; in matters of judgment and justice and in all other affairs love, honestly speak and confess the truth; and, so far as I can, defend and promote my neighbor’s good name.

Weekly Catechism for 2018 (Heidelberg 1563) | Lord’s Day 36

99. What is required in the third commandment?
That we must not by cursing, or by false swearing, nor yet by unnecessary oaths, profane or abuse the name of God; nor even by our silence and connivance be partakers of these horrible sins in others; and in sum, that we use the holy name of God no otherwise than with fear and reverence, so that He may be rightly confessed and worshiped by us, and be glorified in all our words and works.

100. Is then the profaning of God’s name by swearing and cursing so grievous a sin that His wrath is kindled against those also who seek not, as much as in them lies, to hinder and forbid the same? 
Yes truly: for no sin is greater, or more provoking to God than the profaning of His name. Wherefore He even commanded it to be punished with death.

Thanks So Very Much
Dear Grace Family, Thank you so very much for the recognition of our 10 years with you this past week. The expressions of thank, encouraging words, generous gift and entire celebration was such an encouragement to us, and we were and are overwhelmed by how gracious you were to us. It has been our joy to journey with you this last decade and we are so thankful the Lord crossed our paths. We have spent some time thinking of you, and remembering all the faces of so many from the last 10 years. We are thoroughly blessed to be among you and are so thankful to be your pastor and pastor’s family. We love you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. - Pastor Ryan, Christie and the Kids.
