Weekly Confession: May 12th
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 fail to bless You for blessing us in Christ before the foundation of the world by adopting us as Your children according to the purpose of Your will (Ephesians 1:3-6).
We confess that we too often live as if we have not been redeemed and forgiven through Your lavish love in Christ (Ephesians 1:7-8).
We confess that we are unaffected by the future hope of all things being united together in Christ in the fullness of time (Ephesians 1:9-10).
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.
