Catechism Lesson for the Week of June 24, 2018

Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of June 24, 2018:

[III] THE LORD’S PRAYER

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

THE FIFTH PETITION

“And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”

What does this mean?

Answer: We pray in this petition that our heavenly Father may not look upon our sins, and on their account deny our prayers, for we neither merit nor deserve those things for which we pray. Although we sin daily and deserve nothing but punishment, we nevertheless pray that God may grant us all things by his grace. And assuredly we on our part will heartily forgive and cheerfully do good to those who may sin against us.[1]

Catechism Lesson for the Week of June 17, 2018

Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of June 17, 2018:

[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]

[III] THE LORD’S PRAYER

IN THE PLAIN FORM IN WHICH THE HEAD OF THE FAMILY

THE SEVENTH PETITION

“But deliver us from evil.”

Catechism Lesson for the Week of June 3, 2018

Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of June 3, 2018:

[I] THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

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

THE NINTH COMMANDMENT

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house.

What does this mean?

Answer: We should fear and love God, and so we should not seek by craftiness to gain possession of our neighbor’s inheritance or home, nor to obtain them under pretext of legal right, but be of service and help to him so that he may keep what is his. [1]
