Day # 12 March 2nd – Confession

Confession has become a difficult discipline for us to participate in, and the problem most likely stems from our lack of humility. The best we get at confessing is saying “sorry” and then immediately list several reasons that caused us to act the way we acted (go ahead, just try saying I am sorry, without any justifying statement following afterward). Confession is important for the health and well being of our emotional spiritual and even physical state. When we have done wrong, we need to confess, and ask for forgiveness. Confession is first admitting your wrong, and then seeking forgiveness both from God and the one you hurt or offended. James 5:16 says Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Confessing our sins to God is important, but for the sake of maintaining Holy fellowship we must confess to each other. Keeping our wrongs locked up and hidden separates us from God, and from each other. Do you have an unconfessed wrong, change that today, and free yourself from the burden and weight of sin.
