When life is troubled, confession is a good way to go. A friend emailed me these verse earlier this week.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
When one becomes aware that they are guilty in any of these matters, they must confess in what way they have sinned.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
These verses remind of the testimonies of some people I watched be baptized this last summer. Confessing helped them “come clean,” help keep them accountable, and be saved.
My prayer today is that when I meet with my pastor, I’m open and honest, I’m thankful God forgives “our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
