[Silent praise and worship of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in His works, actions and words]

Assurance of Pardon
“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us-for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree’- so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.” – Galatians 3:13-14
“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.” – 1 Peter 2:24
In Christ your sins are forgiven, your shame is covered and your dignity as a person has been restored. Amen. Alleluia.
