Catechism #24 & #25

Question #24: How are these articles divided?

Answer: Into three parts: God the Father and our creation; God the Son and our deliverance; God the Holy Spirit and our sanctification.

Question #25: Since there is but one God, why do you speak of three: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

Answer: Because that is how God has revealed himself in his Word: these three distinct persons are one, true, eternal God (Deut. 6:4; 1 Cor. 8:4, 6; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:18-19; Luke 4:18 (Isa. 61:1); John 14:26; 15:26; 2 Cor. 13:14; Gal. 4:6; Tit. 3:5-6)
