First Part: Guilt (Q. 3-11)
3. From where do you know your misery?
From the Law of God.(Rom 3:20, 7:7)
4. What does the Law of God require of us?
Christ teaches us in sum, Matthew 22: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.(Deut 6:5)
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (Lev 19:18; Gal 5:14)
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”(Lk 10:27)
5. Can you keep all this perfectly?
No,(Rom 3:10-12, 23; 1 Jn 1:8, 10)
for I am prone by nature to hate God and my neighbor.(Gen 6:5, 8:21; Jer 17:9; Rom 7:23, 8:7; Eph 2:3; Tit 2:3)
