"We sin. We all do. “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8). Fortunately, it’s not our sin that keeps us from God’s forgiveness. It’s our unwillingness to recognize it, to deal with it, which does that. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). We must, therefore, confess . . . and regularly.⠀
⠀
That is easier to say, of course, than to live. Confession is hard. Giving voice to words describing our sin is hard. We often think that just saying them, naming our sin, will somehow make it more real. We think naming our sin will put more of its taint upon us. Brother, it’s real. Its full taint is upon us already. And there’s no path to forgiveness and taint removal, except first through confession. But it’s not actually confession if we never say the words—if we obfuscate or talk around the sin. Naming it, simply and plainly, pulls it up and out of the tangle of denial and confusion. It places our sin in the open, where we can see it, where we can paint a target on it, where we can finally bring the power of the Holy Spirit and community against it."⠀

"You can pray anywhere you go. The word says pray without ceasing. Have a prayerful mindset and see how your day turns out. Be intentional with your time. Be intentional with The Father. Listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying.⠀

  • Follow @jrothra // Anyone can do good deeds. However, only those who believe in Jesus can truly please God. We cannot please God apart from Christ.⠀
⠀
If we want to be near to God, spiritualism and good works will not do the job. One must (1) believe God exists (duh, right?), and (2) seek God through the only way to come to him: through Jesus (cf. John 14:6). Those who seek God will be rewarded, and those who please God will be blessed.⠀

📖 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.⠀
