My only comfort…

From the Heidelberg Catechism (1576 A.D.):

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

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