It would be worth getting to worship this week…,
if only to confess our sin.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.1 John 1:9
We live in a world that ignores sin, tries to deny it, and finally minimizes sin. As creatures of our culture, we have a tendency to follow the same pattern. But sometimes the guilt still kills us, doesn’t it?
For the above reasons, it is a wonderful thing for us to get together weekly and – all together – to admit our transgressions and our sinfulness by our very nature.
Better yet, it’s terrific to hear – together – that it is all forgiven. The blood of Jesus, God’s Son, purifies us from all sin. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sin, and not only for ours, but also for the sins of the whole world.
If only to confess our sin – and to find it cancelled in Christ – it would be worth getting to church: this week … and the next … and the next….
