Weekly Hymn: Now Thank We All Our God
- Q114 But can those converted to God keep these commandments perfectly? /
Answer: No. In this life even the holiest have only a small beginning of this obedience. Nevertheless, with earnest purpose they do begin to live not only according to some but to all the commandments of God.
- Q115 If in this life no one can keep the ten commandments perfectly, why does God have them preached so strictly? /
Answer: First, so that throughout our life we may more and more become aware of our sinful nature, and therefore seek more eagerly the forgiveness of sins and righteousness in Christ. Second, so that, while praying to God for the grace of the Holy Spirit, we may never stop striving to be renewed more and more after God’s image, until after this life we reach the goal of perfection.
- Q116 Why is prayer necessary for Christians? /
Answer: Because prayer is the most important part of the thankfulness which God requires of us. Moreover, God will give his grace and the Holy Spirit only to those who constantly and with heartfelt longing ask him for these gifts and thank him for them.
