Heidelberg Catechism Lords’ Day 12

31. Q. Why is He called Christ, that is, Anointed?
A. Because He has been ordained by God the Father, and
anointed with the Holy Spirit,
to be our chief Prophet and Teacher,
who has fully revealed to us the secret counsel and will of God
concerning our redemption;
our only High Priest,
who by the one sacrifice of His body has redeemed us,
and who continually intercedes for us before the Father;
and our eternal King,
who governs us by His Word and Spirit, and who defends and
preserves us in the redemption obtained for us.
32. Q. Why are you called a Christian?
A. Because I am a member of Christ by faith
and thus share in His anointing,
so that I may as prophet confess His Name,
as priest present myself a living sacrifice of thankfulness to Him,
and as king fight with a free and good conscience against sin
and the devil in this life,
and hereafter reign with Him eternally over all creatures.
