If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:9-10 ESV)
Hymn ELH 403:4,6 God Loved the World So that He Gave
Be of good cheer, for God’s own Son
Forgives the sins that thou have done;
And, justified by Jesus’ blood,
Thy Baptism grants the highest good.
Glory to God the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One!
To Thee, O blessed Trinity,
Be praise now and eternally!
Heavenly Father, thank You for forgiving my sins for the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, my Savior. In His name I pray. Amen.
