Do you have a problem — a struggle with certain sins in your life? Is it easy for you to admit it?
It hurts whenever people wrongfully judge us, doesn’t it? There are millions of reasons, however, for us to judge others — we think. We don’t want to face our own faults, let alone admitting them. In fact, we mastered to cover them well. In the end, we are not as bad (as so and so), are we?
Two years ago I had the privilege to help out at a Children’s Bible Camp. My part during this one week was to teach the memory verse. I share a little story with the kids. It was my confession of having a problem with Gummi Bears (not the television series but the fruit gum candy). Yes, the children had a big grin on their faces, too. 🙂
My point was? The problem might start out very small, but it can grow into a big one quite fast. When we refuse to deal with problems they can heap up into a huge mountain. Such a humongous pile is hard to crush. You will need something, Someone, stronger than yourself to pulverize that mountain!
Do I have a problem, a struggle with certain sins in my life? I sure do. Is it easy for me to admit them? Um, certainly not! It’s always best to face them, though. 1 John 1 says that,
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
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 that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
Confessing our sins is very important and asking God for His wonderful Mercy and Forgiveness is so healing!
There is absolutely no sin — none of our problems — too much to forgive! Jesus has the power to forgive sins. Will you come to Him with your burdens today and lay your sins at His feet?
