On Sunday we focused in on a time of confession. Because of who God is and what He has done we worship Him. When we rightly worship Him we humble ourselves, confess, and repent. See our reading below.
God is great. He is faithful. And he has done great things. So now what does that mean for us. What do we do with that? As Christians what God has done and who He is should move us to worship Him, and as we worship Him the Holy Spirit will convict us of our sin. We humbly confess and repent. So let us do that now. We will read 1 John 1:5-7 to prepare our hearts, and we will take a moment to pray and confess.
Read the underlined portions aloud with me.
5 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Now, as we lift our heads, we stand boldly and confidently in our Savior Jesus Christ. We do not wallow in sin and shame, but having repented we run to Jesus and the victory of the cross!
We followed our confession by singing the song “Singing In The Victory” in which we proclaim the hope we have in our savior Jesus!
