117 After my wife, they’d buried her, I went home. I tried to go to work. I had thousands of dollars in debt, and frankly on that till just recently got out of it.
My father had died, no insurance. We couldn’t afford insurance or nothing and there he was. By the way I’m not an insurance person.
My assurance… One guy come to me the other day, said, “I want to sell you some insurance.”
I said, “I… Listen, don’t talk to me about that.” I said, “I have insurance.”
Said, “Oh, you have insurance?”
I said, “Yes, sir.”
Said, “What is it?”
I said, “Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine. Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine.”
He said, “That’ll not put you in the grave up here.”
I said, “I’m not worried about getting in there. That’ll bring me out.” I said, “I’m worried about coming out, not going in.” I said, “That’s right.” I ain’t got nothing against insurance, it’s all right. You see? That’s all right. And some people’s insurance poor. That’s right. But I tell you of an insurance you can collect on it right now: Just now the Holy Spirit of God. Is right. The assurance of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and we’ll come out again.
