Weekly Confession: Dec. 23rd
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 sometimes reject our calling to be a blessing to others through sharing the Gospel of Christ in word and deed (Genesis 12:1-3).
We confess that we often fail to participate in pushing back the darkness out of fear and forgetfulness that Your kingdom has come and is coming still until the return of Christ (Genesis 12:4-9).
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.
