1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
This text is a promise of hope, comfort and deliverance that is being offered on today from God to them that are carrying around the burdens of guilt and condemnation from sin if we are willing to confess them to Him..
A promise of “forgiveness” and “cleansing” from all unrighteousness is being offered today from our Faithful Father if we would stop hiding and start confessing our sins.
God has already made and paid the price for our sins at Calvary over 2k years ago. Stop carrying around the unnecessary weight of your sins!
Christ shed blood at Calvary paid for the forgiveness of our sins in the past, present and the future and it freed us from the penalty of sin now and forever through Him.
Romans 8:1-There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
Perhaps your sins may not be open for all to see, but they are done in what you think is secret sin. Regardless, God sees them all. His eyes are light in darkness.
Living in open or secret sin? God wants to heal you, therefore, He is making a promise to you and I on today that we no longer have to hide it nor carry the weight of it around with us anymore for He is willing to forgive and cleanse us from it all.
Sin separates us from God. Confession of them is the pathway back to God.
It is the Lord's will that we seek forgiveness and that none should perish.
King David testifies of the power of "confession of our sins".
Let's listen to Psalm 32:1-5 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord does not count iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. 4 For day and night Your hand was heavy on me; my strength was changed into the drought of summer. 5 I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not conceal. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and You forgave the iniquity of my sin.
David informs us of what happens when we confess our sins. (1) we are blessed because God forgives our sins and covers us- (2) God does not impute wickedness upon us. He does not give us the punishment for it that we deserve, but instead He gives us grace and mercy.
David also informs us of the affects sin had on his physical body before he confessed his sins in vs#3-4- (1) his bones felt limp-He felt weak and without strength from the weight of his sins (2) the weight caused him to groan all day long (3) day and night he felt the displeasure of God’s hand upon him because of his sin. His energy was so low as if he had been drained from the heat of the summer.
David now informs us of what happened after he confessed everyone of his sins to the Father in vs#5.
When he had made up in his mind that he was no longer going to carry around the burden and weight of sin anymore, but he was going to acknowledge his sins and make a total confession of them all to God, here was the end result.
It was "relief" that brought about forgiveness, cleansing and removal of his guilt.
Confession of his sins, caused David to be set free from the pain, guilt, suffering and penalty of sin when we confessed them all.
It was only through a “full” confession that David found relief.
