CONFESSION OF SIN –  (Judges 10:10-15)

Congregation reads the bolded section aloud.

In light of God’s never ending love, let’s take a moment to reflect on the ways we have been unfaithful to the Lord throughout the week. Please read the bolded section from Judges 10:10-15 aloud. 

And the people of Israel cried out to the Lord, saying, 

“We have sinned against you, because we have forsaken our God 

and have served the Baals.” 

And the Lord said to the people of Israel,

 “Did I not save you from the Egyptians and from the Amorites, 

from the Ammonites and from the Philistines? 

 The Sidonians also, and the Amalekites and the Maonites oppressed you, 

and you cried out to me, and I saved you out of their hand. 

Yet you have forsaken me and served other gods; therefore I will save you no more.  

Go and cry out to the gods whom you have chosen; 

let them save you in the time of your distress.”  

And the people of Israel said to the Lord, 

“We have sinned; do to us whatever seems good to you. 

Only please deliver us this day.” 

SONG — 

Have Mercy on Me” by Dale Bischof and Pat Sczebel

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 32:3-5 (NIV)

Then I acknowledged my sin to you

    and did not cover up my iniquity.

I said, “I will confess

    my transgressions to the Lord.”

And you forgave

    the guilt of my sin.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH — From the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith Chapter 17 Paragraph 1. (Jonah)

The sensible sight of the light and love of God may for a time be clouded and obscured from them, yet he is still the same, and [the true believer] shall be sure to be kept by the power of God unto salvation, where they shall enjoy their purchased possession, they being engraved upon the palm of his hands, and their names having been written in the book of life from all eternity.

PRAYER Be seated for prayer.
