Q. What is your only comfort in life and in death?
A. That I am not my own, but belong– body and soul, in life and in death, to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ….
Yesterday at CCC, Rev. Darren Colyn preached from Mark 10 and the healing of Bartimaeus. You can hear the message, “Matter Matters” here. In it, he talks a lot about the Christian response to Platonism found in the gospel and how our bodies, along with our souls, matter.
Towards the end of the sermon, Darren mentioned the Heidelberg Catechism, another writing from our faith tradition that shapes and transforms our worldview. You can find the Catechism on the CRCNA’s webpage- including downloading it as a .PDF and a number of study resources.
You’ll notice that it is set up into 52 “Lord’s Days” and there are 52 weeks in a year. That’s not a coincidence. 😉
This post is a follow-up to the Sunday sermon at Christ Community Church. It provides a resource to continue learning and growing spiritually.
