Q. 45. What is the duty which God requires of man?
A. The duty which God requires of man, is obedience to His revealed will.
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.
You have commanded your precepts
to be kept diligently.
He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.”
