Confession of Sin: Mar. 28th
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 pause now to silently confess our individual sins before confessing together as a congregation from the text in Luke.
We confess that we tend to focus more on the world's rebellion than on our growth in submission to You (Luke 22:66-71).
We confess that we often try to use our freedom in Christ to avoid suffering rather than preparing for it through the means of grace (Luke 23:1-25).
We confess 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.
