Heidelberg Catechism
Lord’s Day 38

103. Q. What does God require in the fourth commandment?
A. First, that the ministry of the gospel and the schools be
maintained and that, especially on the day of rest, I diligently
attend the church of God to hear God’s Word, to use the
sacraments, to call publicly upon the LORD, and to give
Christian offerings for the poor.
Second, that all the days of my life I rest from my evil works, let
the LORD work in me through His Holy Spirit, and so begin in this
life the eternal Sabbath.
