Weekly Confession: Nov. 10th

weekly confession red

 

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 grow cold, apathetic, and cynical in life because we forget that You have promised to make all things new when You return  (Joel 3:1-18).


We confess that we struggle to forgive and love others because we forget that You have promised to make all things right when You return (Joel 3:19-21).


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.   


Amen
