Confession of Sufficiency

leader: Let us confess our sin before the king and one another.
we kneel

 

leader: We can confess that so often we think that we are smarter than You and that we know better than You.

all: Lord forgive us!

 

leader: We confess that we often twist Your Word God to meet our own needs, expectations and for our own benefit.

all: Lord forgive us!

 

leader: We confess that we try and answer the question of the mystery of the universe that You have laid out for us in splendor with earthly knowledge and apply our own knowledge to things we can’t comprehend.

all: Lord forgive us!

 

leader: God we confess to you that we try and make things so complex when You speak simply. And we make things simple that You have gifted to us in complexity.

all: Lord forgive us!
leader: God we confess to you that we twist our earthly knowledge and allow that to lead us into our own self sufficiency instead of relying on the sufficiency Christ.

all: Lord forgive us!
