Repent & Confess Your Sin
We all have done something we should not have done. Yet, when confronted with our action, how do we respond?
‘You have committed a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin’
He did not deny his wrong but merely explained it away.
But look at what Aaron said to Moses:
“You know how prone these people are to evil. Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.’ So I told them, ‘Whoever has any gold jewelry, take it off.’ Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!”
It would be so much better to simply confess our wrongdoing and repent.
David repented when confronted with his sin with Bathsheba and God forgave him.
Repentance restores our relationship with the Lord but does not remove the consequences of our actions.
When we do the wrong thing, we should confess our sin and seek His forgiveness.
Pray: Lord, please forgive me for trying to justify my sins rather than repent of them. Help me to be quick to confess and seek Your forgiveness every day.
This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.
