Prayer: Great God, we bring before You today the times we have sinned in thought, word, and deed. Heal us O Lord and continually remind us that You have already made us whole. Our sins are forgiven. Blessed by the name of the Lord. Amen.
Westminster Confession of Faith – The Shorter Catechism Question #18 “Wherein consists the sinfulness of that estate whereinto man fell?”
Answer: “The sinfulness of that estate whereinto man fell, consists in the guilt of Adam’s first sin, the want of original righteousness, and the corruption of his whole nature, which is commonly called Original Sin; together with all actual transgressions which proceed from it.”
Read Romans 5: 10 – 20 Ephesians 2: 1 – 3 James 1: 14- 15.
Sin is a real bummer. It gets one down and mires a person in quick sand with no end. Yet, through the Forgivness of Sins, we are made alive in Christ. Our sins are forgiven. So today, live like a person made alive in Christ!
Prayer: Holy Holy Holy God, we will live this day in Your joy and Your love. Let us lift up our hearts to You, O Lord God Almighty. It is in You that we find our Joy and our strength. Amen.
