Lord's Day 24 Insufficiency of Our Good Works
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. Lordâ€™s Day 24 62. But why cannot our good works be the whole or part of our righteousness before God? Because the righteousness which can stand before the judgment seat of God must be perfect throughout and entirely conformable to the divine law,1 but even our best works in this life are all imperfect and defiled with sin.2  Gal. 3:10; Deut. 27:26.  Isa. 64:6; *Jas. 2:10; *Phil. 3:12. 63. Do our good works merit nothing, even though it is Godâ€™s will to reward them in this life and in that which is to come? The reward comes not of merit, but of grace.1  Lk. 17:10; *Rom. 11:6. 64. But does not this doctrine make men careless and profane? No, for it is impossible that those who are implanted into Christ by true faith, should not bring forth fruits of thankfulness.1  Matt. 7:18; *Rom. 6:1â€“2; *Jn. 15:5.
