1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Remember when you were a child and you sat at the dinner table and if there was something you didn’t like you would hide it under the table. While hoping that mom and dad didn’t see you.
Now that the years have passed, we are still having those tendencies of hiding our sins under the table, but this time were hiding them from God.
What makes a person hide? There are many reasons as to why. Guilt plays a big part of hiding. Feeling alone worthless, out or sorts, and being sad.
If you don’t like something go to Jesus and confess to it to Him, instead of hiding. Confess your sins. The reason why we must do this is so that guilt and shame don’t overtake us. Let’s face it folks we aren’t perfect we do some dumb things, only later to regret what we have done. The reason why we regret is because when we don’t confess what we have done we open the door of guilt and shame which weighs heavy on us.
So, let’s be big boys and girls and confess every sin to God. He has promised to forgive us and clean us of all unrighteousness.
