Tomorrow, we will continue our studies on Total Depravity and the Grace of Conversion. We will focus on the following articles of the Canons of Dort under the 3rd and 4th head of Doctrine:

Article 4: The Inadequacy of the Light of Nature

Article 5: The Inadequacy of the Law

Article 5: The Need for the Holy Spirit and the Gospel

“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? … So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” (Romans 10:14-17)

“Question: Since then faith alone makes us share in Christ and all His benefits, where does this faith come from?
Answer: From the Holy Spirit, who works it in our hearts by the preaching of the gospel…”
Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 65

“What, therefore, neither the light of nature nor the law can do, God performs by the power of the Holy Spirit through the word or ministry of reconciliation, which is the gospel of the Messiah, by which it has pleased God to save men who believe, both under the old and under the new dispensation.” – Canons of Dort

Please pray that the Holy Spirit will use our class tomorrow to instill in our hearts both gratitude and dedication to Christ and the ministry of the gospel.

I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary.
