Catechism Lesson for the Week of July 29, 2018

Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of July 29, 2018:

[III] THE LORD’S PRAYER

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

THE SIXTH PETITION

“And lead us not into temptation.”

What does this mean?

Answer:  God tempts no one to sin, but we pray in this petition that God may guard and preserve us that the devil, the world, and our flesh may not deceive us or mislead us into unbelief, despair, and other great and shameful sins, but that, although we may be so tempted, we may finally prevail and gain the victory.[1]

Catechism Lesson for the Week of July 22, 2018

Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of July 22, 2018:

[III] THE LORD’S PRAYER

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

THE FIRST PETITION

 “Hallowed be Thy name.”

What does this mean?

Answer:  God’s name is indeed holy in itself, but we pray in this petition that it may also be holy for us.

How is this done?

Answer:  When the Word of God is taught clearly and purely and we, as children of God, lead holy lives in accordance with it.  Help us to do this, dear Father in heaven!  But whoever teaches and lives otherwise than as the Word of God teaches, profanes the name of God among us.  From this preserve us, heavenly Father![1]
