From Psalm 105

Confession and Assurance of Pardon

Merciful God, you pardon all who truly repent and turn to you. We humbly confess our sins and ask your mercy. We have not loved you with a pure heart, nor have we loved our neighbor as ourselves. We have not done justice, loved kindness, or walked humbly with you, our God. Have mercy on us, O God, in your loving-kindness. In your great compassion, cleanse us from our sin. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us. Do not cast us from your presence, or take your Holy Spirit from us. Restore to us the joy of your salvation and sustain us with your bountiful Spirit, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Scripture Reading and Sermon: Acts 15

Profession of Faith

Question: What is your only comfort in life and death?

Answer: That I am not my own, but belong with body and soul, both in life and in

death, to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins

with his precious blood, and has set me free from all the power of the

devil. He also preserves me in such a way that without the will of my heavenly Father not a hair can fall from my head; indeed, all things must work together for my salvation. Therefore, by his Holy Spirit he also assures me of eternal life and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live for him.
