JUST CONFESS!

1 John 1:9 – Devotional

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.”

I often recall my days working as a County Juvenile Probation Officer. One of the judges I worked for was a wise old veteran of the early frontier days in a gold mining town.

He taught me to listen carefully to what people were saying and never believe that they always would tell the truth. In fact people generally will tell a lie even when it would be easier on them to tell the truth. That is part of our fallen nature.

As believers we often are tempted to disguise our sinful actions as slips, accidents or errors in judgment. Regardless of what we call our deviation from God’s perfect standard – – it is sin and we must confess our sin to get the victory.

I can recall times in my life when I tried to color my sin as being something else. I was always miserable until I confessed to God and then to those I had wronged. It was then I felt God’s peace that passes understanding and come to understand that God knows my heart better than I do and my sin is evident regardless of my denial. He wants us to JUST CONFESS AND LET HIM CLEANSE US!

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing.
