If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 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.
I john 1:8-9 (NLT)
We sin. And yet John has to remind us to confess our transgressions. More than that, he is asking us to admit that we sin. Who could possibly live in this human flesh and say they do not sin? And yet we do. Perhaps we wouldn’t say, “No” if someone came and pointblank asked us if we sin, but we are not living as if it really matters. How much of our behavior is really suspect and yet we do not stop. What attitudes are completely wrong and yet we do not change. Instead God wants to convict us of what we do wrong so we can clear our conscience and stay in a right relationship with him. The saddest reality is not the act of sinning itself, but not repenting, not confessing and not letting God help us correct it. Today, check your heart. Confess to Him any sin that has you trapped, any sin that has not been confessed, any sin that you think does not matter. It does.
Dear Father, how You know I sin. Forgive me for not keeping my conscience clear. Today speak to me, show me my wrongdoing and help me confess so I can live in the awareness of Your forgiveness and cleansing. In Jesus’ name.
