Those thoughts, words and deeds that have taken our eyes off of Christ and His finished work
And put them on ourselves.
We have fooled ourselves into seeing our obedience as a substitute for your perfection.
We have failed to see that even our best works are as filthy rags in your sight.
Father, we confess that we have deserted your Gospel.
We have made a mockery of the Cross.
For the sake of your great name,
have mercy on us.
Refresh us with your love,
that we may remain fixed on Jesus alone.
