Preparing for the Lord’s Day

Our Sermon Text for This Sunday – Psalm 1


Catechism – Instruction of God’s Word

Doctrinal Standard BC #89

  • What does every sin deserve?
  • Every sin deserves God’s wrath and curse, both in this life, and in that which is to come.

Memory Verse(s)

  • “For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them” (Galatians 3:10, ESV).


  • Study Passage: Ephesians 5:3–7
  • Support Passages: Ephesians 5:6; Galatians 3:10; Lamentations 3:39; Matthew 25:41
  • Bible Story: Revelation 20:11-15


  • Doctrinal standard 83 explains that the Bible teaches us that not all sins are equally evil.
  • “In the eyes of God some sins in themselves are more evil than others, and some are more evil because of the harm that results from them” (BC #81). While not every sin is equally evil all sin is equally punishable by death. Yes, murder is more heinous than a single lie but both transgress the Law of God requiring the righteous punishment of death. James explains this truth eloquently in chapter two verse ten, “for whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become accountable for all of it.” In order to gain acceptance before God apart from Christ one would have to live obediently to all of the Law. We know this is an impossible feat. James explains that if we fail in even one area we are guilty of all the Law. This is why some sin can be more evil than others but all deserving the same curse.

Discussion Questions

  • What does every single sin deserve?
  • Last week’s catechism asks: Are all sins equally evil? The answer, In the eyes of God some sins in themselves are more evil than others, and some are more evil because of the harm that results from them. Discuss how these two doctrinal standards complement each other.
  • Do you think it is fair that the smallest infraction of God’s law requires death? Explain.
  • What would it reveal about God if he deemed “minor” sins acceptable?
  • The fact that even the “smallest” of sins require death, who must we depend on for salvation?
  • Explain what it means to depend on Jesus for Salvation.
