Merciful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we bow before you, confessing our sin and wickedness.
It is in our very nature to sin.
We are subject to temptations every day, and are drawn to them by our own unholy desires.
We cannot separate our actions from who we are.
We are guilty before you, and worthy of condemnation.
Righteous Father, we appeal to your mercies offered in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We praise you for his blood, which covers our iniquity, and atones for our sin.
Assurance of God’s Pardoning Grace — Romans 5: 8-9
“God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.”
