1 John 1:9 . If we confess our sins

1 John 1:9 .

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness....... 

Thoughts on This Verse... 

Confessing our sins means that we view our sin the same way that God does -- the same revulsion and disdain for them. 

This kind of confession opens our hearts to the flood of heaven's grace (see Psalm 51). 

God shares with us the sweet liberation from sin that Jesus purchased at Calvary; and our sins are not only forgiven, but we are purified. 

We are no longer sinners and the stain of that sin is removed as well. 

We are clean, perfect, and without spot because of God's purifying grace (Col. 1:21-22). 

Now let's live in a way that is reflective of this incredible gift!
