Last year, we finished with our review of Spurgeon’s Catechism as published each Sunday on the back of our bulletin.
Beginning this year, 2020, we will be taking a look at one or more questions in the Heidelberg Catechism in the same fashion. It is our firm belief that consistent review of orthodox Christian beliefs, by way of a “question-and-answer” format, will help us gain a greater understanding and appreciation of Bible truths.
“till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head–Christ.” (Ephesians 4:13-15)
For the week beginning Sunday, November 22nd:

Q122. What is the first petition?
A122. Hallowed by Your name. That is: Grant us first of all that we may rightly know you,*1 and sanctify, glorify, and praise You in all Your works, in which shine forth Your almighty power, wisdom, goodness, righteousness, mercy, and truth.*2
Grant us also that we may so direct our whole life – our thoughts, words, and actions – that Your name is not blasphemed because of us but always honored and praised.*3
