Lord's Day Comfort

This question from the Heidelberg Catechism is worth committing to memory.  It is breath-taking in its certainty and strength.

Question 1. What is your only comfort in life and death?

Answer. That I am not my own, but belong—body and soul, in life and in death - to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.  He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.  He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven: in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.  Because I belong to him, Christ, by his Holy Spirit, assures me of eternal life and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready
from now on to live for him.


  1. we belong to the Lord - Yes, what comfort! And I love that this is true, ALL THE TIME, even when I'm not feeling it.

  2. To know this is to be fully alive.

  3. Amen and amen, my friends. I wholeheartedly agree.
