When commenting on Heidelberg Catechism, Lord's Day 5, Theodorus VanderGroe stated that:

The instructor’s great objective and goal is to show all men the way in which they, in life and in death, can attain to a blessed comfort and peace for their souls. To this end, he teaches us that one essentially needs a true, thorough, spiritual, and experiential knowledge of the following three essential matters: 1) the magnitude of our sins and misery; 2) the true way of salvation, or the true means of deliverance; and 3) how one who has been delivered and set free by the Lord should show gratitude and live unto God.
