“It’s Not About Us”
Response of Faith Heidelberg Catechism 34, 40
Q. Why do you call [Jesus] “our Lord”?
A. Because―not with gold or silver, but with his precious blood―he has set us free from sin and from the tyranny of the devil, and has bought us, body and soul, to be his very own.
Q. Why did Christ have to suffer death?
A. Because God’s justice and truth require it: nothing else could pay for our sins except the death of the Son of God.

* Benediction
* Closing Song
