March 2021 - Christ as Priest & King
Christ fills the office of a priest in his once offering up of himself to God as a sacrifice, to satisfy divine justice and reconcile us to God; and in making constant intercession for us.
Christ fills the office of a king in making us his willing subjects, in ruling and defending us, and in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies.
While we see the consequences of sin in the world; while there are conflicts, diseases and hardship, what assurance and comfort we derive from knowing that Christ has not only done what is necessary for our salvation but has assumed his place at the right hand of his Father where he now intercedes for us; and rules and reigns and puts all his enemies under his feet.
What is the Shorter Catechism?
The Westminster Shorter Catechism (or simply the Shorter Catechism) was completed in 1647 as part of the Westminster Standard. It is a succinct summary or exposition of Christian faith & doctrine, and has been a guide & teaching tool for the passing on of Presbyterian beliefs. The Shorter Catechism is composed of 107 Q&A's. Questions include - What is the chief end of man? What is God? How did Christ, being the Son of God, become man? What benefits do believers receive from Christ at death?
Participants will gain an understanding of the essential Reformed perspective of God based on Scriptural texts.
