Heidelberg Question 43

Q & A 43

Q. What further advantage do we receive
from Christ’s sacrifice and death on the cross?
A. Through Christ’s death
our old selves are crucified, put to death, and buried with him,^1
so that the evil desires of the flesh
may no longer rule us,^2
but that instead we may dedicate ourselves
as an offering of gratitude to him.^3

^1 Rom. 6:5-11; Col. 2:11-12
^2 Rom. 6:12-14
^3 Rom. 12:1; Eph. 5:1-2
