q. christian, what is your only comfort in life + in death?

a. that i am not my own, but belong-
body and soul, in life + in death –
to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.

He has fully paid for all my sins
with his precious blood,
and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.

He also watches over me in such a way
that not a hair can fall from my head
without the will of my Father in heaven.

in fact, all things
work together for my salvation.

because i belong to him,
by his Holy Spirit,
assures me of eternal life
and makes me
wholeheartedly willing + ready
from now on to live for him.
