in the cross of Jesus
we see the cost of our sin
and the depth of your love:
in humble hope and fear
may we place at his feet
all that we have and all that we are,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
When we sin we do not live up to our values and this can lead to
other people suffering. The way that Jesus suffered when he was
betrayed by his friends shows just how much harm our sin can do. We
need God's love, healing and forgiveness in order for us to start
again and try to live up to our Christian values.
