Martin Luther made sure that we do not only talk about confession, but that we do it! He provides a short form for the seared-conscience Christian to faithfully confess their sins and to faithfully receive the full forgiveness of sins on account of Christ. In this short form we clearly reminded of our many failures toward God and our neighbor (causing hurt or harm, spoken evil, stolen, lack of love). The pastor attentively hears these sins and gives a clear conscience to the penitent, only by God’s authority in Christ, through the forgiveness of sins. In repentant peace go to your pastor, confess your sins, and receive this undeserved forgiveness.
