Confessing Our Sins
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness-” 1 John 1:9 (NASB)
No one is perfect, not even Christians. Sometimes we fall down as we follow Christ. This falling is called sin. We fall short of God’s standard for holiness and purity when we sin. So what should we do when we fall or sin? If we fall down, we must get back up, confess our sins, and keep following Christ. “He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” So the next time you fall: get up, confess your sins and follow Jesus.
Do you confess your sins when you fall down?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, forgive me for my sins. Purify me, so I may be holy and reflect Christ in how I live my life. In Jesus name, amen.
