Words of Assurance: 1 Peter 3: 18

Here are words of assurance based closely on 1 Peter 3:18.  They were written by Nathan Nettleton.

(based on 1 Peter 3:18)

Christ suffered for sins, once for all,
the righteous for the unrighteous,
in order to bring you to God.
Through the mercy of Christ, God remembers you
but not your faults or your sins.

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