Allowing the Biblical truths of the Heidelberg Catechism to shape our theology and Christian living.

STT 081 – Your Baptism Continues to Strengthen You as You Run Your Race (HC LD 26, QA 69-71)

Do you realize that baptism is an ongoing part of how God encourages and strengthens you on your wearying road to eternal life? It will help you to slow down and think about what God is promising you in your baptism, and how He will comfort you through this divine gift.

To learn more about the sacraments and how to benefit from them, check out these GREAT resources: Heidelberg Catechism 65-82; Westminster Shorter Catechism 88-97 and Westminster Larger Catechism 161-177; Belgic Confession articles 33-35. Also, you may be interested in The Book of Praise: Anglo Genevan Psalter from the Canadian Reformed Church. Perhaps this will interest you for family worship.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR FAMILY WORSHIP: (1) As you run your race, what are you looking for God to provide along the way to strengthen and help you? (2) How often do you think about your baptism and does it comfort you when you do? (3) Is your baptism more about God’s promise to you or about you “going public” with your faith?
