Weekly Confession: Feb. 5th
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 too often forsake weekly corporate worship as You designed according to Your means of grace in favor of our own private means (Leviticus 9:1-6).
We confess that we have a limited view of atonement as only the forgiveness of sins instead of the fuller call to newness of life and thanksgiving for being reconciled to You in Christ (Leviticus 9:7-21).
We confess that we fail to recognize and desire Your presence and glory displayed as the true goal of worship choosing instead to make our feelings and desires the goal (Leviticus 9:22-24).
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.
