Something to think about.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 1 John 1:9-10
While we seek and preach, success, prosperity, health, joy, happiness, sacrifice, and work where does confession come in? Have we forgotten or regulated our most important of beliefs to a hidden corner of our theology? If we confess our sins, His forgiveness opens the door to all the things we seek and preach about? If we are cleansed from all unrighteousness what is left but blessing?
