Weekly Confession: Oct. 6th
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 rend our garments for public show but fail to rend our hearts in order to be restored to You who forgives us through our repentance in Christ (Joel 2:12-14).
We confess that we care more for our reputations than we do for Your name and glory among the nations (Joel 2:15-17).
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.
