Lord's Day 33

  • Q. 88.  Of how many parts doth the true conversion of man consist?
    A.  Of two parts: of the mortification of the old, and the quickening of the new man.1 

  • Q. 89.  What is the mortification of the old man?
    A.  It is a sincere sorrow of heart that we have provoked God by our sins, and more and more to hate and flee from them.2

  • Q. 90.  What is the quickening of the new man?
    A.  It is a sincere joy of heart in God, through Christ,3 and with love and delight to live according to the will of God in all good works.4

  • Q. 91.  But what are good works?
    A.  Only those which proceed from a true faith,5 are performed according to the law of God,6 and to His glory;7 and not such as are founded on our imaginations or the institutions of men.8
