Weekly Confession: Oct. 8th

weekly confession

 

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 have often been unable to contribute to the spiritual growth of the church because we have not been daily holding fast to Jesus (Colossians 2:16-19).

 

We confess that we frequently fail to recognize the power over sin our union in Christ provides, trusting instead in human wisdom to make ourselves appear righteous. (Colossians 2:20-23).

 

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.

 

Amen.
