Confessing your sin is a big deal. You do not want to be walking around pretending that everything is fine. When you are in sin, you need to come clean before God. Sometimes you need to come clean with someone else so that they can love you and hold you accountable. Someone that will pray for you and encourage you to walk in holiness. This sometimes can feel like shame and you would rather just cover it up, but sin when it is full grown brings forth death (James 1:15).
In 1 John 1:9, it says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Do not wait, get right with God today!
