Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 13
That brings a whole new meaning to some of the stories we celebrate today. They have taken away my Lord, and I don't know where they've put him! The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon! I have seen the Lord! My Lord and my God! None of the disciples dared ask him who he was; they knew it was the Lord.
The Master is back, and he has set us free - not with gold or silver, but with his precious blood - from sin and the tyranny of the devil. We are now his. Body and soul. Happy Easter!]
Q33. Why is he called God’s “only begotten Son”
when we also are God’s children?
A33. Because Christ alone is the eternal, natural Son of God.
We, however, are adopted children of God—
adopted by grace through Christ.
Q34. Why do you call him “our Lord”?
not with gold or silver,
but with his precious blood—
he has set us free
from sin and from the tyranny of the devil,
and has bought us,
body and soul,
to be his very own.
