Below was our confession of sin this morning. I was blessed by it.
Father in heaven, we confess our sin of trying to heal ourselves. Instead of trusting in the death of Jesus Christ, we have tried to work off our guilt and pile up good deeds that outweigh our sins. Quickly frustrated, we have turned to denial and distraction. Instead of trusting in the resurrection of Christ, we have tried to change through our own efforts. We have tried to transform our hearts through sheer willpower. This has left some of us arrogant and the rest of us anxious and depressed. Forgive us for trying to heal ourselves. Forgive us for neglecting your grace. Father, forgive us and heal us, for Jesus’ sake.
