I know that every day is a gift and my faith in King Jesus sustains me in life and death. I have noticed that my non-anxious presence about this has caused discomfort in others. But, as many of you know, I am not like others. I could die but I hope to live! There are many people that I love and desire to continue to keep loving even more than I do so now. Moreover, I wish to continue to refine my gifts and press into my calling and help others to know them selves and their creator. This is the beginning of true knowledge and wisdom. Nevertheless, today I have meditated and taken much comfort in the first question of the Heidelberg Catechism.
Q. What is your only comfort in life and death?
A. That I am not my own, but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death, to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, and has set me free from all the power of the devil. He also preserves me in such a way that without the will of my heavenly Father not a hair can fall from my head; indeed, all things must work together for my salvation. Therefore, by his Holy Spirit he also assures me of eternal life and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live for him.
