Confession ………….

 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive
us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”
1 John 1 :9 

What  is confession?  It is admitting that I have done wrong.
Human pride does not make it easy to say – “I am guilty.”

Christ”s Model Prayer teaches us to say
– “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive  our debtors…”
God can and will forgive us only when we are willing to
-admit and confess – we have done wrong.

True confession –  is of a specific  nature.
1. Only brought before God.
2. Confessed to individuals who you have hurt.
3. A public confession.

Confession – should be definite and to the point,
acknowledging the very wrongs of what you are guilty.
It generally stems from thinking ourselves better than we really are.
We have to be willing to admit  ‘guilt’ – willingly and sincerely.

He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”
Proverbs  28 : 13
