Confession of Sin: May 10th
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 often fail to take joy in the various sinners that Jesus welcomes into our fellowship to hear the Gospel (Luke 15:1-2).
We confess that we frequently lack joy in our own salvation and are unable to rejoice when Jesus brings the lost home (Luke 15:3-7).
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.
