Our ONLY comfort

Question: What is our ONLY comfort in life and death?

Answer: That I with body and soul, both in life and death,  am not my own, but belong unto my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ; who, with his precious blood, has fully satisfied for all my sins, and delivered me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head; (g) yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation, and therefore, by his Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life, and makes me sincerely willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto him.

This comes from the Heidelberg Catechism. This catechism is a way to teach our children (and ourselves!) rich and wonderful theology.
