             What is thy only comfort in life and death?

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;
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.

Question 1 of the Heidelberg Catechism

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
