Catechism Corner

Q. 47. How did Christ humble himself in his conception and birth?
A. Christ humbled himself in his conception and birth, in that, being from all eternity the Son of God, in the bosom of the Father, he was pleased in the fulness of time to become the son of man, made of a woman of low estate, and to be born of her; with divers circumstances of more than ordinary abasement.

(Westminster Larger Catechism)

Tabletalk Moment

Peter Asks About John:  Peter was to follow Jesus and be faithful in his calling no matter the consequences, even if he would suffer differently from others. The same is true of us. We are to be faithful where God has placed us, not envying the calling of others or being discontent if their trials are different from ours. (Tabletalk Magazine, December 20, page 52).

Looking Ahead: The focus of January Tabletalk is the Synod of Dort, which took place 400 years ago. Our January discussion time gathering will consider one of the articles written about Dort in the January Tabletalk. January copies are available on the back table.
