Q. 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.
The first question and answer of the Heidelberg Catechism.
There is nothing new to report on Isaiah’s condition. The community packed a high school gymnasium for Jeff’s service this afternoon. The other boys are either released from the hospital or scheduled to be released in the next few days.
Wait and pray.
That is the job we have been given.
