Weekly Confession: Oct. 20th
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 disregard the gift of the Holy Spirit that has been poured into our hearts in Christ as evidence of our restoration to You (Joel 2:28-29).
We confess that we frequently fail to call on Your name in order to be saved choosing instead to seek salvation from those less loving and powerful than You (Joel 2:30-32).
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.
