Lord's Day 9 Heidelberg Catechism

Lord's Day 9:

Scripture Readings: Matthew 14:15-21; John 2:1-11; 2 Peter 3:1-3

Question 26. What do you believe when you say, "I believe in God the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth"?
Answer. That the eternal Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who out of nothing created heaven and earth and everything in them, who still upholds and rules them by eternal counsel and providence, is my God and Father because of Christ, God's Son. I trust God so much that I do not doubt that God will provide whatever I need for body and soul, and will turn to my good whatever adversity God sends me in this sad world. God, being almighty God, is able to do this; God, being a faithful Father, desires to do this.
