Sure Comfort

[You have come] to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
HEBREWS 12:24

Sure Comfort
We have the forgiveness of sins only for the sake of the Mediator and the mercy seat, Christ, through the redemption in His blood, and are pronounced righteous before God (Romans 3:24-25). He clearly and plainly uses the word gratis (Romans 3:24)—without our merit and not for the sake of our works—so that we can have sure comfort and need not doubt grace and salvation, even though we are very unworthy and still have sins remaining.

From the Church Postil, sermon for Ascension on Mark 16:14-20 (Luther's Works 77:279)
