Catechism Lesson for the Week of August 19, 2018

Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of August 19, 2018:

[II] THE CREED

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

THE FIRST ARTICLE: CREATION

“I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth.”

What does this mean?

Answer:  I believe that God has created me and all that exists; that he has given me and still sustains my body and soul, all my limbs and senses, my reason and all the faculties of my mind, together with food and clothing, house and home, family and property; that he provides me daily and abundantly with all the necessities of life, protects me from all danger, and preserves me from all evil.  All this he does out of his pure, fatherly, and divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness on my part.  For all of this I am bound to thank, praise, serve, and obey him. This is most certainly true.[1]

[III] THE LORD’S PRAYER

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

[INTRODUCTION]

“Our Father who art in heaven.”

What does this mean?

Answer:  Here God would encourage us to believe that he is truly our Father and we are truly his children in order that we may approach him boldly and confidently in prayer, even as beloved children approach their dear father.[1]
