"But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness." - 1 John 1:9 NLT
Confessing or admitting you’re wrong is a step we all must take to receive forgiveness. Sometimes that can be hard when you’re living in sin. It can be hard to understand how you ended up in such a deep hole and feel like you are living so far away from God. When one sin turns into a life of sin, it can seem like we aren’t sinning at all, because when you get that far, the thought of living for Jesus Christ is the last thing on your mind. Then you hit rock bottom or something happens, and God, the one who you thought was so far away, never left your side. He is calling all of us and He is saying, “I love you and I want to forgive you.” Just like that, all of the sin and wickedness that we were living in can be taken away and never held against us because Jesus Christ payed the price, so we could be forgiven and have our sins removed from judgement and our lives written in the Book of Life. It’s time to stop digging a hole and confess our sin because we serve a faithful God who never leaves our side. He will bring you out of the hole you’re digging and clean you off. Today is the day that the Lord as made and we all have the opportunity to ask for forgiveness. Ask the Lord to reveal your sin and ask Him for forgiveness today.
