Weekly Confession: Jan. 1st

weekly confession

 

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 trust and obey Your Law (Luke 2:22-24).

 

We confess that we frequently forget that Christ came to offer salvation in the presence of all peoples and that too many will reject Him (Luke 2:25-35).

 

We confess that we don’t give thanks to You for the coming of Jesus and neglect to speak of Him to those in need of redemption (Luke 2:36-38).

 

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.

 

Amen.
