The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

“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)
Perhaps we acknowledge regularly in our public and private prayers that we are sinners, unworthy of God’s favor. But a more detailed confession is needed. The forgiveness and cleansing mentioned in 1 John 1:9 come as we bring before God our daily blunders, failures, and transgressions. Have we lied? Have we entertained lust in our hearts? Have we acted selfishly? Have we spoken harshly? We must confess all our sins, and with God’s help forsake them. If we fail to do this, we hamper the Holy Spirit’s power at work in us.
