1 John 1:8-10 If we claim to be without sin, we dececeive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives. Hebrews 8:12, I (God) will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sin no more.
The One and Only True and Living All Wise God of the Holy Bible is merciful. He loves us and offers forgiveness of sin to all who are willing to humble themselves before him and agree with him and his word. In other words what he calls sin we must call sin also, even if we participate in the behavior. When we confess our sin to God, he has pormised to forgive us of sin and and cleanse us of all unrighteousness. God is faithful and will keep ever promise he has made to us. We Praise God because he is not like people, once he forgives us of our sin he does not hold it over our heads and remind us of our sin. However there may be consequences from that sin that we may have to deal with for the rest of our lives. But God in his mercy will be with us forever.
Prayer: Lord you are merciful and we thank you, you forgive us of our sin and cleanse us of all unrighteousness, if we confess our sin and ask you for your forgiveness. Lord please forgive us of the sin we commit againist you daily, the sin we knowing and unknowing commit against you. Lord please convict us of the individual sin we commit against you and give us the faith to repent. Then fill us with your Holy Spirit so that we can live the life you have called us to live. Thank you Lord for your mercy, It is for you namesake and in the powerful name of Jesus Christ that we pray Amen.
