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.
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.
