Mr. Van Kempen is a man whom the Lord has revealed Himself in sovereign grace in Christ. We both
served the Lord’s church in consistory for several years, which also included our visiting many elderly
saints in their spiritual needs. We have been labeled “sidekicks” by those who find where one is, the
other is sure to be near.
Case speaks freely of his meditating upon the preciousness of Scripture and how sweet the Lord Jesus is
to him. From this meditation, Case began to commit his thoughts on paper. Several years ago, I strongly
suggested that Case collect these papers into a booklet of meditations. From a single booklet
came another until Case reached one booklet for each month of the year for a daily devotion for the
child of God.
This current book had its beginning as Case began meditating upon the Heidelberg Catechism and again
found its way into print. The entire Catechism is presented in 52 Lord’s Days in short, pithy thoughts, of
experiential salvation to the glory of God.
Rev. D. J. VanderKlok

About the Author

The Author Cornelius VanKempen is married to His wife Susan for 51years. God has blessed us with 5 children, 4, boys and 1 girl. Each of them have found a mate, giving us 10 children and 18 grandchildren. God has abundantly blessed us as their love and care for us cannot be measured. We have riches which cannot be put into words. For about 6 years after retiring from auto repair I have been writing meditations to be better versed in the Word of God with no intention of publishing them. For many years of my life, real heart religion was not what interested me. But God had different plans, by His Spirit, He opened my heart to see my need for a Savior! Sin became sin in my life, The Bible became a necessity even though it condemned me. Jesus Christ was the only remedy. I learned that nothing I could do would save me. This brought me almost to despair, but God opened His Word from Hosea 14:4, "I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him." This brought joy to my soul. It is the work of a Triune God in my heart without any work on my part. It was all Free Sovereign Grace. I could not but write about Him, whose mercy endures forever. May this book be used by God to the salvation of poor helpless sinners for his glory alone.
