We Are Sinners…

30/09/2016

Let us confess our sins unto Almighty God…

In YOUR church, how often does the service include a confession of sin?  In some modern evangelical churches the answer would be ‘never.’  Not even in prayer. 

Here’s Brian Chappell on Confession of Sin in worship :‘We run to his arms with our sin sick hearts because we know there is grace sufficient, boundless and free already there. We repent because we are forgiven, not to gain forgiveness. In our confession we experience God’s love because we confront our sin with the greatness of mercy that is already ours through faith in Christ, but we do not earn, gain or force God’s pity by the words or weight of our confession.’
Christ Centred Worship P283

We are sinners. John said,

1 John 1:8 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.

Let us therefore confess our sins unto Almighty God….
