Confessing Sin

 

Ya-hoo!!!

Ya-hoo!!!

Confessing our sin to God is an expression of faith and an act of obedience. Its the maintenance work for our spiritual infrastructure. It results in that supernatural freeway we call forgiveness… the mercy of Heaven in exchange for the broken-ness of Earth.

God wants us to daily experience what He has already done for us through the death of His Son on the cross.

 This real and ongoing experience of God’s forgiveness helps you remain an open pathway through which God’s grace and power can travel freely. Unconfessed sin short-circuits the flow of God’s power in our lives.

 Let me illustrate: One day several years ago, as I was operating the controls of my son’s electric race car set, it suddenly stopped running. I could not figure out what was wrong. I took the track apart, and put it back together. I pushed the plug in and out of the socket; nothing happened. Then I discovered that a little piece of metal – a “No Left Turn” sign – had fallen across the tracks, short-circuiting all the electrical power.

 To maintain a victorious Christian life we must keep short accounts with God… we must confess any sin that enters our life the moment God’s Holy Spirit reveals it to us. If we refuse to confess our sin, we adjust to walking in darkness instead of in the light of God’s love and freedom. This causes enormous problems that remain hidden like that simple “No Left Turn” sign.

Through confessing sin we are giving our Heavenly Father an opportunity to lift the weight of shame as well as clarify the pathway for spiritual power.

That enables us to overcome the next time… its the “stumbling block into stepping stones” transformation we are all looking for in life. It also clears the track for blessings to pass freely through our lives.
