A Creed

My uncle Brent posted this creed on his blog. I wanted to share it with you.

Question 1.
What is thy only comfort in life and death?


That I with body and soul, both in life and death, (a)

am not my own, (b)

but belong unto my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ; (c)

who, with his precious blood, has fully satisfied for all my sins, (d)

and delivered me from all the power of the devil; (e)

and so preserves me (f)

that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head; (g)

yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation, (h)

and therefore, by his Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life, (i)

and makes me sincerely willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto him. (j)

I printed it out and hope to remember to read it this week. Aloud.

Interestingly enough, my brother Daniel spent a school year in Heidelberg. That's where this creed came from evidently.
