Declarations of Pardon after the Confession

  1. Through the voice of the prophet Isaiah, God says, “Remember these things, O Jacob, and Israel, for you are my servant; I formed you, you are my servant; O Israel, you will not be forgotten by me. I have swept away your transgressions like a cloud, and your sins like mist; return to me, for I have redeemed you.” Let us believe this good news: in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.
  2. The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. God have mercy on us and bless us. Amen.
