Christian piety, according to the Heidelberg Catechism, does not consist of acts of devotion, spiritual disciplines, or the contemplative life. Rather, true piety is loving obedience to all of God's commandments. This piety of good works, born out of love and obedience, shaped the public and private life of Christians in the Reformation and redefined the nature of pastoral care.
