(Part 2 of a 3-part series on articles on the Heidelberg Catechism)

Gratitude!
The Catechism's View of the Christian Life

by Rev Carl Haak
 
This article emphasises how the Heidelberg Catechism has shaped the spiritual lives of Reformed believers. It reminds us of our only comfort in life and in death - that we belong to our Savior Jesus Christ!

My sin, my deliverance, my gratitude forms the "triple knowledge". Gratitude to God is the only motive for Christian living! "The Catechism is making the point that thankfulness to God must drive the whole of our conduct." Hence, the need for good works!  

This gratitude is also long-suffering. It endures hardships, trials and temptation. It fights against Antichrist and holds to the truth contained in the Catechism. May we continue to live grateful lives, loving God and be thankful for the Heidelberg Catechism.

Prov 13:22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.

What inheritance will grandparents leave for their grandchildren?

When asked "Whether you promise and intend to see these children, when come to the years of discretion (whereof you are either parent or witness), instructed and brought up in the aforesaid doctrine, or help or cause them to be instructed therein, to the utmost of your power?", these parents answered with a resounding yes!

Preach the Catechism! The Great Blessing of This Long-Standing Practice
by Prof Barrett Gritters
 
Do you know the history of preaching catechisms? Why does your our church preach from a 450-year-old man-made document each week?

This is the history of Reformed churches from their beginnings. And CERC practises it!

This article discusses the Dutch origins of the Reformers, the Arminians' objections to preaching the Heidelberg and the struggles our forefathers had in defending and maintaining this practice.

There are many blessings in Heidelberg Catechism preaching. This article explains 8 ways in which it is beneficial for us. Download and read more to find out how we benefit from the HC preaching!

Latest Issue of "Salt Shakers" from the "Covenant Keepers" - November 2015

"Covenant Keepers", the youth ministry of the Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church of Singapore (our sister church), has just released issue #35 of "Salt Shakers" (November 2015),their youth magazine.

Once again the "SS" is packed with interesting and edifying articles, and our PRC young people especially are invited and encouraged to read it.

Below you will find a note from the "SS" Committee introducing the contents of this issue and images of the cover and table of contents. The entire issue is also attached here in pdf form.

Dear readers, 

We are thankful to be able to bring to you Salt Shakers issue 35! Another year of publishing has come and gone; the hour of history grows later, and the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ rapidly approach. Yet in the darkness of our present age, and as we look back on the events of the year, the saints may confidently confess: God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.
Do take the time to be edified by many excellent articles in this issue! Some of which include an examination of the teachings of the "Hyper Grace" and "Prosperity Gospel" message in Hyper Graceand a practical discussion of the Reformed distinctive of total depravity in Knowledge of Total Depravity and Self Esteem. We heartily thank all writers for their hard work and contributions to this issue of Salt Shakers. 
 
Pro Rege, Chua Lee Yang, On behalf of the Salt Shakers Committee

This new edition was released for the occasion of Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church's celebration of Reformation Day this year.

Zeal for God's House: The Motivation for Christian Discipline
by Prof Ronald Cammenga 

Jesus' first official act was cleansing the temple. He drove out those that were buying and selling as they defiled God's house. The disciples remember the words from John 2:17 " The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up."

Our Lord Jesus Christ also expects this zeal in us. To keep His house clean and undefiled. To have Christian discipline. And there is motivation. What is this motivation?

This pamphlet lists 3 motivations behind this zeal; Love for the Erring Brother, Love for the Church and Love for God. Download to find out more!

ABIDING IN OUR CALLING
by Rev Angus Stewart

I Corinthians 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.

The text for this pamphlet is taken from I Cor 7:17-24. Here Paul exhorts the Corinthians to abide in their calling. What does that mean? Does it refer to the effectual call (grace) or the vocation (providence) that we are called to walk in? It refers to both!

This is a 4-part pamphlet series written by Rev Angus Stewart which takes a look at the effectual call through election (a work of grace), the vocation we are called to (employment and marriage state) and our contentment.

"Believe in God’s sovereign appointment for you and be content, for all things work together for your good.(Rom. 8:28)"
