Sin Against the God in Whose Image We Are Made

Posted in Confession of Sin at 15:09 by Trey Austin

God, our Creator and Sustainer, you made us as your people, to be your agents and co-laborers over all that exists. We were created in the blessed image of the Triune Godhead, to be a community that shows the world who you truly are; you called us to love one another, pray for one another, and encourage one another. Yet, like our first parents, we have fought one another, betrayed one another, and showed contempt for one another in defiance of you. We ask that you would forgive our great sin against you and all other men, for the sake of Christ, whose love, prayers, and encouragement are the reason we live. Grant that you would fully restore your image in us, through him who is the very image of the invisible God in human flesh, that we might, with him and in him, be sons of God by your grace and to your glory. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
