- ○ Here is a sample of a “fictitious” confirmand writing about their confirmation verse: (please do not use)
■ My Confirmation verse is John 11:35, “Jesus wept.” When I read that verse, I realize that Jesus, who is fully God, is also fully man, IS like ME. He hurts like me; He feels the pains of others like me. In fact, when Jesus wept, he was weeping because of the pain that Lazarus’ death brought to Mary and Martha, and others. But most of all, this verse promises that Jesus, who is with me always, knows my pain, sees my struggles and promises to hear me when I can go to Him in prayer and praise. The writer of Hebrews invites all who believe: Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)
- Your statement of faith should be MORE than 300 words and LESS than 500 words. Your confirmation verse(s) is/are not counted in your word count of 300-500 words.
- You are encouraged to quote the bible, Luther’s Small Catechism, the Creeds in your Statement of Faith.
- You will read your statement of faith at the end of the year at “Testimony and Pepperoni”
