Confession

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: A lot of people are weighed down with a guilty conscience.

Woman: I’ve been thinking about what I said to that person today. I can’t even pray about it!

Nancy: Proverbs 28:13 says, “Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.” Confession is an important part of living a holy life.

When we’ve sinned, first, of course, we need to confess to God, because every sin is ultimately an offense against Him.

Second, if we’ve wronged someone else, we need to confess it to them and seek their forgiveness.

And then third, at times it can be important to acknowledge our sin to other believers. I’ve seen how that kind of confession has helped to break sinful patterns in my own life. As James tells us, “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other, that you may be healed” (5:16).

When’s the last time you asked God if there’s something you need to confess?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
