Confession, that's a word that isn't always received well in our society and even in the church sometimes. Yet, the Scriptures teach us that confession is truly positive, free-ing, for-our-good thing! It was provided to us by a loving, Holy, and Just God who doesn't want us to live and didn't create us to live with the guilt of sin or even bitterness and a whole bunch of other things that can happen due to unresolved - unconfessed sin.

When you agree with God by confessing your sin and that your sin is, well, sin, it frees you from a burden that only Christ was meant to carry for you and I.

The below brief devotional thought from Max Lucado is a great reminder of these truths.  Please see the below.

May you take time to read it and then take time to confess your sins so you can you truly walk in the forgiveness and freedom He's already provided you with.

With Love and Blessings in Christ,
Your brother and servant,

Confession!  It’s a word that conjures up many images—some not so positive.

Confession isn’t telling God what he doesn’t know.  That’s impossible.  It’s not pointing fingers at others without pointing any at me.  That may feel good, but it doesn’t promote healing. Confession is a radical reliance on grace—a trust in God’s goodness.  The truth is, confessors find a freedom that deniers don’t!

Scripture says,  “If we say we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  But if we confess our sins, he will forgive our sins, because we can trust God to do what is right.  He will cleanse us from all the wrongs we have done. John 1:8-9″

Tell God what you did.  Again, it’s not that he doesn’t already know, but the two of you need to agree!  Then let the pure water of grace flow over your mistakes!
