Heidelberg Catechism

I thought Friday’s would be a good time to go through the Heidelberg Catechism.  It is a great way to become more versed in the truths of the Word of God.  The Catechism is a series of questions and then the Biblical answers.  Read, THINK, and meditate over the weekend on each one.

Q1: What is your only comfort in life and in death?

A. That I, with body and soul, both in life and in death,[1] am not my own,[2] but belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ,[3] who with His precious blood [4] has fully satisfied for all my sins,[5] and delivered me from all the power of the devil;[6] and so preserves me[7] that without the will of my heavenly Father not a hair can fall from my head;[8] indeed, that all things must work together for my salvation,[9] and, therefore, by His Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life,[10] and makes me sincerely willing and ready from now on to live unto Him.[11]
