Weekly Confession: July 8th
Gracious and Merciful Father,
We come before you to confess our sin as Your redeemed and beloved children. May Your Spirit alone convict us of our sin and remind us of our pardon in Christ through repentance.
We confess that we frequently fail to live as those who have been born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, choosing instead to walk in the perishable, defiled, and fading glory of this world (1 Peter 1:3-5).
We confess that we often blame You for our suffering, seeing no meaning in it as opposed to seeing that You redeem our suffering and give it meaning (1 Peter 1:6-9).
We confess all of these things before You because You are faithful to forgive us in Christ. Bless us with the assurance of our pardon by Your Holy Spirit in Christ alone by faith alone through Your grace alone from Your Word.
