If you’re asked this question, “What is your only comfort in life and in death?” what would be your answer?
Last weekend the youth group from Covenant Reformed Church (URCNA) in Carbondale, PA took some time to walk around at a local event and asked this question to people willing to participate in this 1-question survey. Below is what they found out. How about you, what is your only comfort in life and in death?
The Heidelberg Catechism which follows the outline of the book of Romans, answers that question as follow:
That I, with body and soul, both in life and in death, am not my own, but belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ, who with His precious blood has fully satisfied for all my sins, and redemmed me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me that without the will of my Father in heaven not a hair can fall from my head; indeed, that all things must work together for my salvation. Wherefore, by His Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life, and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live unto Him.
