Full Coverage


Many years ago I came across a leaflet entitled, “Eternal Life Insurance Policy.”  Since then a few other versions have temporarily crossed my desk.  I am sure that if I searched the desk in my study at home and the one at the building and I looked in the right filing cabinet, I would find a copy of one of those policies.  I bring this up because I found an old clipping from a bulletin this morning that had a poem by H. H. Hover that reminded me of these policies.

Full Coverage

I have an insurance policy

Written in the blood of the Lamb,

Sealed by the cross of Jesus,

Redeemable wherever I am!

The Company will never go bankrupt,

It is bonded by God’s promise true;

It will keep every word of its contract,

Exactly what it says it will do.

I don’t have to die to collect it,

No premiums do I have to pay;

All I do is to keep God’s promise

And walk in His holy way.

No collector will ever come calling,

It was paid on Calvary’s tree;

It insures me for living and dying

And for all of eternity.

Jesus says, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly, (John 10:10).”  “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6).”  “Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. (Rev 2:10).”

Are you covered by Christ? – cf. Gal 3;26-27.

- Scott
