“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9
“THE SIN THAT IS MOST DESTRUCTIVE IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW, IS THE ONE YOU ARE MOST DEFENSIVE ABOUT.” ~ Tim Keller
Think about that for a minute. What do you get most defensive about?
There’s a root to sin in our answer. There’s something we are trying to cover up by being defensive, making excuses or shifting the blame on someone else.
When we do this we stay in bondage to the sin. But when we call the sin out of darkness, God forgives us and sets us FREE. And whom the son sets free is free indeed! Hallelujah!
