Catechism Corner

Q. 35. How is the covenant of grace administered under the New Testament?
A. Under the New Testament, when Christ the substance was exhibited, the same covenant of grace was and still is to be administered in the preaching of the Word, and the administration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper; in which grace and salvation are held forth in more fulness, evidence, and efficacy, to all nations. 
(Westminster Larger Catechism)

TableTalk Moment

Our Enemy The World:  “We must be in the world and yet not of the world (John 17: 14-16). That is, we do not withdraw into a closed community of Christians but form our affections by the Word of God in the church and then go into the world with the gospel, able to resist the world in the power of the Holy Spirit.”  (September 26, page 58).
