在生死的事上,什麼是你唯一的安慰?What is your only Comfort in life and in death?

Heidelberg Catechism Question 1 (New improved translation into Mandarin by Jean Heidel.)

問題1: 在生死的事上,什麼是你唯一的安慰?






Q1: What is your only comfort, in life and in death?

A:That I belong---body and soul, in life and in death---not to myself but to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ,

who at the cost of his own blood has fully paid for all my sins and has completely freed me from the dominion of the devil;

that he protects me so well that without the will of my Father in heaven not a hair can fall from my head; indeed, that everything must fit his purpose for my salvation.

Therefore, by his Holy Spirit, he also assures me of eternal life, and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to live for him.
