Heidelberg Catechism: Lord's Day 8

Q: 24. How are these articles divided?
A: Into three parts; the first is of God the Father, and our creation; the second of God the Son, and our redemption; the third of God the Holy Spirit, and our sanctification.

Q: 25. Since there is but one only divine essence, why do you speak of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?
A: Because God has so revealed himself in his word, that these three distinct persons are the one only true and eternal God.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
