The Feast of the Holy Trinity – 1st Commandment Sermon 6/12/22

Who Is Your God?
Luther’s Small Catechism

P: As the head of the family should teach them in a simple way to his household.

P: What is The First Article of the Apostles’ Creed?
C: I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

P: What does this mean?
I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that He has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still takes care of them.
He also gives me clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, wife and children, land, animals, and all I have. He richly and daily provides me with all that I need to support this body and life. He defends me against all danger and guards and protects me from all evil.
All this He does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me. For all this it is my duty to thank and praise, serve and obey Him. This is most certainly true.

P: What is the First Commandment
C: You shall have no other gods.

P: What does this mean?
C: We should fear, love and trust in God above all things.

P: What is the Introduction to the Lord’s Prayer?
C: Our Father who art in heaven.

P: What does this mean?
C: With these words God tenderly invites us to believe that He is our true Father and that we are His true children, so that with all boldness and confidence we may ask Him as dear children ask their dear father.

P: Which is the great commandment in the law?”
C: ” ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ “This is the first and great commandment.”Matthew 22:37-38
