Confession of Sin:Father, you alone created and ordered the earth. You alone providentially created seasons and interrupt them as to your purposes. We confess that we live as if we are in charge of the world. We fret over things out of our control, we neglect our duties, we don’t committee to every day obedience required of us. Our wicked hearts are on display by how little time devote in prayer and how we abide in the advice and perform for fellow fallen humans than abiding in your truth. Instead of seeking to love others as our joy and obedience, we use others to make us happy. We are lonely and depressed and undisciplined as a result. Forgive us. Bring us into alignment with your Gospel, which which is from you, extending from Creation to restoration. Help us follow and serve King Jesus, who alone is our life and hope. Thank you for loving us and sending your Son as a complete and atoning sacrifice. Thank you for renewed minds and restored lives and purposes, according to the power of your resurrection. Help us to commit our ways to being led by the Holy Spirit.

New City Catechism Question 8: What is the law of God stated in the Ten Commandments?You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below—you shall not bow down to them or worship them. You shall not misuse the name of the Lordyour God. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Honor your father and your mother. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not give false testimony. You shall not covet.
