Bible Verse Of The Day #24

Verse Of Today

1 John 1:9 {9} If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Inspiration:

Confessing our sins can be a real challenge: often we do not even know that we have committed sins until far after we have committed them. Pride, one of the 7 deadly sins, is often difficult to get past. Have your ever done something that you knew was wrong and because of pride or the fear of embarrassment refuse to ask for forgiveness? I have learned that quickly apologizing when and asking forgiveness makes all parties feel better. It helps you recognize when you have sinned as well. The Lord will always forgive you, but you must knock on his door. It does not happen the other way around. The choice is yours.

Prayer:

Immortal Father, ruler of both heaven and earth, I know that I have been tempted by evil in many moments of weakness and arrogance. I have strayed, hurting those that love me the most out of selfishness. Most of all, I have turned my back on you, my Lord. and I ask that you forgive me for these transgressions. I thank you with every breath for sending your son. Jesus Christ. to die for my sins, knowing full well that I have done nothing to deserve this mercy. I shall do what I can to honor Christ, and it is in his body name that I pray, Amen.
