The Glorious Gospel of Grace (Sermons on the Heidelberg Catechism). Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: . . . our great and gracious God will reward the faithfulness of His children. Not because He has to, but because He wants to. He is like a father who promises his children to reward them for the work he gives them to do. Because He loves His children, He wants to encourage and inspire them. . . Who performs the good works believers do? Who is the source that allows them to produce fruits of thankfulness? Who else but God? Who else but the Spirit of Jesus Christ? . . . All thoughts of merit disappear in the light of the gospel of the crucified Christ. . . What an incredible display of divine mercy! The only answer to it is a life of love for the mercies of our God. Merit implies calculation. Earning credit points does not demand love. But true believers don't keep a record of their good works. They are overwhelmed by the gospel of grace. THeir fruits of faith well up from hearts that stammer. "What shall I render to my Saviour now, for all the riches of his consolation?" - From the sermon on Lord's Day 24 Rev. G. Wieske was born in 1938, in the Netherlands. As a teenager, he moved with his family to Armadale, Western Australia, where he later worked as a business man while he served the church many years first as a deacon, then as an elder. In 1981, having sold the family business, he moved to Canada to study at the Theological College of the Canadian Reformed Churches. Rev. Wieske was ordained as Minister of the Word and Sacraments in 1985, and has served the churches at Lincoln, Ontario; Neerlandia, Alberta; Chatham, Ontario; and Spring Creek, Ontario. Since his retirement in 2003, he has kept busy helping churches both in Canada and Australia which are temporarily without a minister. Rev. Wieske is married to his wife Trudi.
