Catechism – Instruction of God’s Word

Doctrinal Standard BC #90

  • What does God require of us, that we may escape His wrath and curse, due to us for sin?
  • To escape the wrath and curse of God due to us for sin, God requires of us faith in Jesus Christ, repentance unto life, with the diligent use of all the outward and ordinary means whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of redemption.

Memory Verse(s)

  • “Testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance toward God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21, ESV).

Scripture

  • Study Passage: 1 Corinthians15:1-11
  • Support Passages: Acts 20:21; Proverbs 2:1-5; Proverbs 8:33-36; Isaiah 55:3
  • Bible Story: Acts 13:13-53

Thoughts

  • “In addition to knowledge of the facts of the gospel and approval of those facts, in order to be saved, I must decide to depend on Jesus to save me. In doing this I move from being an interested observer of the facts of salvation and the teaching of the Bible to being someone who enters into a new relationship with Jesus Christ as a living person. We may therefore define saving faith in the following way: Saving faith is trust in Jesus Christ as a living person for forgiveness of sins and for eternal life with God. This definition emphasizes that saving faith is not just a belief in facts but personal trust in Jesus to save me” (pg. 710).
  • “Repentance is a heartfelt sorrow for sin, a renouncing of it, and a sincere commitment to forsake it and walk in obedience to Christ… Repentance, like faith, is an intellectual understanding (that sin is wrong), an emotional approval of the teachings of Scripture regarding sin (a sorrow for sin and a hatred of it), and a personal decision to turn from it (a renouncing of sin and a decision of the will to forsake it and lead a life of obedience to Christ instead). We cannot say that someone has to actually live that changed life over a period of time before repentance can be genuine, or else repentance would be turned into a kind of obedience that we could do to merit salvation for ourselves. Of course, genuine repentance will result in a changed life. In fact, a truly repentant person will begin at once to live a changed life, and we can call that changed life the fruit of repentance” (Pg. 713). [1]
  • The last part of the answer to this doctrinal standard teaches us that we are to be diligently involved “in all the external ways Christ uses to bring us the benefits of redemption.” In the next few weeks the catechism will go into detail and explain the “benefits of redemption.” The “”benefits of redemption” consist of the Word (reading, memorizing, and the teaching of the scriptures), Baptism (“signifying our engrafting into Christ and partaking of the benefits of the covenant of grace, and our engagement to be the Lord’s”), Lord’s Supper (“represent and apply to believers the benefits of the new covenant by visible and outward signs”) and Prayer (“offering our desires to God in the name of Christ for things that agree with His will, confessing our sins, and thankfully recognizing His mercies”).

Discussion Questions

  • What does it mean to have faith in Jesus?
  • What does it mean to repent?
  • How are faith and repentance connected?
  • What are the “external ways Christ uses to bring us the benefits of redemption?”
  • How are these things beneficial to us?
