Catechism Lesson for the Week of July 23, 2017

Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of July 23, 2017:

[I] THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

 IN THE PLAIN FORM IN WHICH THE HEAD OF THE FAMILY
SHALL TEACH THEM TO HIS HOUSEHOLD

[CONCLUSION]

What does God declare concerning all these commandments?

Answer: He says, “I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.”

What does this mean?

Answer: God threatens to punish all who transgress these commandments.  We should therefore fear his wrath and not disobey these commandments.  On the other hand, he promises grace and every blessing to all who keep them.  We should therefore love him, trust in him, and cheerfully do what he has commanded.[1]

Catechism Lesson for the Week of July 16, 2017

Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of July 16, 2017:

[III] THE LORD’S PRAYER

IN THE PLAIN FORM IN WHICH THE HEAD OF THE FAMILY
SHALL TEACH IT TO HIS HOUSEHOLD

THE SEVENTH PETITION

“But deliver us from evil.”

What does this mean?

Answer: We pray in this petition, as in a summary, that our Father in heaven may deliver us from all manner of evil, whether it affect body or soul, property or reputation, and that at last, when the hour of death comes, he may grant us a blessed end and graciously take us from this world of sorrow to himself in heaven.[1]
