Weekly Confession: Oct. 22nd
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 put to death what is earthly in us choosing instead to live in the sinful patterns of our past (Colossians 3:5-8).
We confess that we frequently keep on our old selves with its practices identifying with our worldly identities instead of our union with Christ (Colossians 3:9-11).
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.
