1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
I am thankful today that I have this scripture for my verse of the day. I know Jesus forgives me and I thank God for his grace every day. But we must have a repentant heart because faith operates in us and we must be bold and approach the throne of grace with a repentant heart.
I will continue to press forward knowing that I am nothing but a sinner and can not approach God without Jesus as my mediator and savior. I am as filthy rags to God without a savior and I need forgiveness to produce a quality life in Christ.
It is a part of the believers life to constantly evaluate and confess daily.
Today let me focus on these verses:
Produce fruit in keeping with repentance.
If I am not practicing repentance of my sins then I shall not produce fruit as I would be when I am right with God through repentance.
Jesus answered them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
I am a sick sinner in need of a Great God who forgives and Loves unconditionally.
I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
King David’s psalms can always show and teach me how to be repentant with a right heart and God will heal me.
O God, you know my folly; the wrongs I have done are not hidden from you.
I can’t hide anywhere God can’t see me. I am appointed a time of birth and a time of death and God knows every second in between.
And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not (KJV)
God will never ever turn his back on a repentant soul. He created us to be with him and our goal as a born again believer to to strive to be a repentant servant at all times.
