1 John 1:9 If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action].
Words For the Day: Report, and Move On
It is important to sincerely sorry if we do something wrong, but it doesn’t help anybody for us to openly mourn over everything that is wrong with us. We will never mature in our faith if we stay angry at ourselves.
We are to repent of our sins, receive forgiveness of it, and then forget it. We must not drag memories of our old behavior around with us all the time. Sooner or later we have to let go and say, “ Well, I made a mistake because I am just an old crack pot.” Then we must let God’s light shine through the holes in our surface and move on!
Take that and run with it!
