Lord's Day 20 Heidelberg Catechism

Lord's Day 20

Scripture readings: 1 Corinthians 12:1-27; John 14: 16-26; 15:26-16:15; Romans 8:1-17

Question 53. What do you believe concerning "the Holy Spirit"?
Answer. First, the Spirit, with the Father and the Son, is eternal God. Second, the Spirit has been given to me personally and, by true faith, makes me share in Christ and all his blessings, comforts me, and remains with me forever.

For discussion and reflection:
Should more emphasis be put on the Holy Spirit in Reformed churches today?
Does Pentecostalism put too much stress on the Holy Spirit?
