The year 2013 marks the 450th anniversary of the Heidelberg Catechism. In light of this anniversary, the Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary has developed a wonderful new web-site that  is filled with all kinds of useful tools for studying the catechism and it’s various Biblical topics. It’s also beautifully designed and very user friendly. Check it out here. I’m thankful for this new resource and look forward to using it throughout the year. Here is the first question and answer of the Heidelberg Catechism:

What is your only comfort in life and in death? My only comfort in life and in death is that I am not my own but belong body and soul to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil. He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my heavenly Father. In fact, all things must work together for my salvation. Because I belong to Him, Christ by his Holy Spirit assures me of eternal life and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to live for Him.–Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 1
