Leviticus 5:5

Are there any sins that you have unknowingly held on to?

A Prayer

Heavenly Father, we come before You today in humble repentance. We have sinned and we are truly sorry. We confess that we have not always been obedient to Your Word and have committed wrongs that do not honor You. We acknowledge our sins and turn away from them, as Leviticus 5:5 states: “When anyone is guilty in any of these ways, he must confess the sin he has committed.” We thank You for Your mercy and forgiveness, and we ask that You forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Advent Reflections – Even in the Waiting – Day 1

As a child, nothing compared to the excitement of being able to sit up and waiting for New Year’s Day. We’d sit up as long as possible on December 31st awaiting the coming year. We knew what was coming, yet we had to watch the clock or we’d miss it. In this passage, Jesus reminds us of the signs before his second coming. He teaches that in order to recognize the second coming, we must stay alert. These verses prompt us to be mindful of the state of our hearts and to stay ready at all times for the coming day of God’s judgment.

REFLECTION – Do you find yourself growing weary in your walk with the Lord? How can you stay encouraged and ready for Jesus Christ’s second coming?
