The Heidelberg Catechism Part 2 "Deliverance" Lord's Day 7 Questions 20&21
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God." - John 3:16-18
The Heidelberg Catechism Part 2 "Deliverance" Lord's Day 10 Question 27
Providence is the almighty and ever present power of God by which He upholds, as with His hand, heaven and earth and all creatures, and so rules them that leaf and blade, rain and drought, fruitful and lean years, food and drink, health and sickness, prosperity and poverty – all things, in fact, come to us not by chance but from His fatherly hand. "He brought me out into a broad place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me." - Psalm 18:19
The Heidelberg Catechism Part 2 "Deliverance" Lord's Day 10 Question 28
How does the knowledge of God's creation and providence help us?
We can be patient when things go against us, thankful when things go well, and for the future we can have good confidence in our faithful God and Father that nothing will separate us from His love. All creatures are so completely in His hand that without His will they can neither move nor be moved.
