Follow Teaching Lord
Have Eternal Life
A Collect for the Day may be said then a passage of scripture appropriate to the occasion, or one of the following passages is read. "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life." John 3.16 Jesus said, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst." John 6.35 The teaching should be based on the Gospel, Epistle or other set Bible passages. See the Worship Alternatives One and Two for ideas. A confession of sin may follow. The following or some other form may be used.
Leader "Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us, that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your name. Amen"✞
