Words of Assurance
(based on Romans 8:
1 2- 1 4)
We no longer need to live as slaves to our sinful natures.
Sin has no claim on us anymore,
because through the power of the Holy Spirit,
we have put to death our old ways of acting and thinking.
We have been given new life as God’s own children.
So be at peace: your sins are forgiven!
Thanks be to God!
