Creștinii din toate veacurile au trecut și trec prin încercări. Mă recunosc în continuitate de credință cu acest scurt paragraf elaborat în 1563. Parcă a fost scris astăzi sau … mâine.
The Heidelberg Catechism (reformat) begins by answering the question,
What is our only comfort in life and in death:
“That I am not my own, but belong—body and soul, in life and in death—to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.
He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven; in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.
Because I belong to him, Christ, by his Holy Spirit, assures me of eternal life and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to live for him.”
Amen, and let it be our only hope during this time.
