Confession and Forgiveness

Tonight the gift of confession and forgiveness. A scripture from 1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  We confess with our mouths the sins that have taken us captive. In His faithfulness and goodness He forgives our sins. Not because we are worthy but because He is worthy and shows us unconditional love. In addition He purifies us, cleansing us from the sin we have commited. Making us once more as white as snow. Jesus died on the Cross to give us this Forgiveness. Yes we are already forgiven but confess our wrongs because we love and honor the Father. Not taking for granted what has been done on the cross for us. Our conscience clear from the guilt that once chained us. God has cast it into the lake of forgiveness. Never to bring it back up to us. Praise God
