God doesn’t seek for golden vessels, and does not ask for silver ones, but He must have clean ones. Dwight L Moody
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:8-9
When Moses was about forty years old, he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew slave and struggled to accept the burdens of his brethren. After looking to see that there was no one around, he killed the Egyptian and buried the body in the sand. The next day, however, when he realised that his crime had been made known, he was gripped with fear and ran away from Egypt. Sin will always produce fear and death but righteousness will produce life and peace.
We can see a similar example when David tried to cover his sin of adultery by orchestrating the death of Uriah, the husband of Bathsheba. We can try to cover our sins and trespasses from other people but we will never be able to hide our sins from God. If our spirit is subjected to the Holy Spirit, He will always guide us to the truth which sets us free from the bondage of sin and darkness.
God’s desire is for us to confess our sin, not to cover them up. He wants to be in close fellowship with us but this is not possible if we are like Adam and Eve, trying to cover our sin with fig leaves. If, however, we come into the light and confess our sin, He is faithful to forgive us and His blood will wash away all our unrighteousness.
So let us sincerely seek the Lord today, to confess our trespasses before Him. If we truly repent, walking away from the sin that ensnares us, the Lord will forgive us and set our feet on the path of love, purity and freedom.
I come to You in Jesus name and ask You to forgive me for my sins. Wash me with Your blood so that I may be made clean and righteous before Your holy presence. Amen.
God bless you,
