Essential Beliefs: Sin and Forgiveness
Sunday, June 3, 2018
Rev. Dr. Cheryl Peterson
Jesus shows his power over sin and evil in his ministry, and on the cross through his death and resurrection. All who acknowledge their sinfulness before God may receive forgiveness and healing through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Next step: As Luther suggests in the Small Catechism, begin each day by acknowledging that you are a sinner in need of forgiveness, and open yourself to the power of the Holy Spirit to forgive and heal you.
