Words of Assurance: Epiphany 5B

Here are words of assurance based on the scripture readings for the fifth Sunday of Epiphany (February 5, 2012).  They were written by Nathan Nettleton.

Declaration of Grace
(inspired by Psalm 147, Mark 1:29-39, Isaiah 40:21-31)

God hears the cries of the brokenhearted
and renews the strength of those who trust in his mercy.
In Jesus Christ, God has taken us by the hand,
forgiving our sins and lifting us up to new life.

Sisters and Brothers,
      your sins are forgiven;
            be at peace.
