1. I am not a sinner.
2. I don’t need forgiven.
3. I have done nothing wrong.
4. I do lots of good things.
5. I am a good person.
Are these statements true or false? Do you say these things? Do you know someone who does and who sincerely believes it?
1 John 1:8-10
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
It is through confession that we align with the justice of God and are forgiven through Jesus Christ. Most importantly, that we confess we are sinners. If any one of us is without sin, we do not need Jesus. Only He was without sin and only He is qualified to save. Confessing our sins is part of worship; part of our lives poured out for Christ. As the Holy Spirit reveals ALL the places of your heart, stand ready to confess your sins to God. This is not to make you feel guilty but rather to bring conviction, change, and to purify you for His glory.

If you really don’t know what this is saying I sincerely ask you to call upon Jesus Christ and simply ask Him to show you the truth and to give you understanding. Jesus Christ will show you if you are seeking truth with a sincere heart…
God bless you.
