Recap

We believe in Jesus Christ who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. God initiates. He initiated all of creation as an overflowing of his goodness, love and perfect power. God created everything good, but Adam and Eve chose to disobey God. They plunged all of humanity into a state of sinfulness. God initiated again, by promising and then delivering the Saviour of the world, His Son, Jesus Christ.

Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit in the virgin Mary. This is impossible. But we learn that nothing is impossible for God. Knowing that we belong to God, we are filled with optimism. We know and understand that God initiates, we can see how he has worked in us, to save us from our sin. We can have hope for the future, because God is the God of the impossible. We were dead in our trespasses, our sins. But God made us alive in Jesus Christ! We are called and equipped by God to share this good news with others!

Questions to think about as you read:

  1. Compare the Apostle’s Creed to the Athanasian Creed. What heretical idea is refuted by this creed?
  2. As you read Genesis 3, what questions come to mind? Why did Eve take the fruit and give some to her husband (three reasons)? What did God do for them?
  3. Lord’s Day 14 explains this line of the creed differently. How does this enhance your understanding of what God has done to save you?
  4. God wants our hearts. What’s the hardest part of following through with this?
  5. God can do the impossible. How does this give you hope and assurance for doing His will?
  6. Faithfulness to God begins in the mind. How does Psalm 42 teach you how to think? How does trusting God’s timing, God being the initiator, and God’s ability to do the impossible, help you?
  7. VBS Summer Day Camp Sunday! Life is wild, but God is good! Prepare your heart and mind to hear and obey God’s Word.
