L If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:6-7)
Silence kept for confession and reflection
C Faithful and Just God
L I confess that I have walked in darkness and have not been true to what you made me to be, a child of the light.
L “If we confess our sins, God is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness... for Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” (1 John 1:8-10, 2:2)
