Confession

Confession means not only that I confess my sin with shame and repentance,

But that I turned it over to God,

Trusting Him to take it away.

Such confession implies that I am unable to get rid of my guilt unless, by an act of faith, I trust God to deliver me.

This deliverance means that I know my sins are forgiven and that Christ undertakes to cleanse me from the sin and keep me from its power.

When we speak of the quickening or the deepening or the strengthening of the Spiritual Life, we are thinking of something that is feeble and wrong and sinful;

And it is a great thing to take our place before God with the confession:

Oh, God, our life is not what it should be!

May God work that in your heart.
