Weekly Confession: Oct. 27th
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 Joel.
We confess that we often fail to reflect Your justice in our relationships with those who bear Your image (Joel 3:1-3).
We confess that we don’t often recognize the cost of injustice to the generations of both the oppressor and the oppressed (Joel 3:4-8).
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.
