Lord's Day 25 Faith Come Through Preaching Assurance from Sacraments
As part of our morning worship service we read and I make a few comments about a Lord's Day of the Heidelberg Catechism. Our hope for preserving these is they will provide instruction for those who are learning the catechism and wanting to understand its teaching. Lord‚Äôs Day 25 65. Since, then, we are made partakers of Christ and all His benefits by faith only, where does this faith come from? The Holy Spirit works faith in our hearts1 by the preaching of the Holy Gospel, and confirms it by the use of the holy sacraments.2  Jn. 3:5; *Rom. 10:17.  Rom. 4:11; *Acts 8:37. 66. What are the sacraments? The sacraments are visible holy signs and seals appointed by God for this end, that by their use He may the more fully declare and seal to us the promise of the Gospel, namely, that of free grace He grants us the forgiveness of sins and everlasting life for the sake of the one sacrifice of Christ accomplished on the cross.1  Gen. 17:11; Rom. 4:11; Deut. 30:6; Heb. 9:8‚Äď9; Ezek. 20:12. 67. Are both the Word and the sacraments designed to direct our faith to the sacrifice of Christ on the cross as the only ground of our salvation? Yes, truly, for the Holy Spirit teaches in the Gospel and assures us by the holy sacraments, that our whole salvation stands in the one sacrifice of Christ made for us on the cross.1
