We confess that had you not loved us first, we would never have turned our love away from ourselves and away from this world, to give it to you. Thank you for loving us first, and for showing us what love is through the atoning sacrifice of Christ. Give us confidence in your love, and freedom to love others as we have been loved by you. Amen.
