Confession Part 2

Tom Harding


Confession: Admitting our sins to ourselves, to God and to others. 

 

The image of God seems to get lost in the stain of sin.

 

  • I’m bad. God mad.
  • I’m bad. God sad.

 

Jesus knew that by His vicarious suffering, he could actually absorb all the evil of humanity and so heal it, forgive it, redeem it.

 

  • I’m forgiven. God glad.

 

2 Corinthians 5:21

For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. 

 

James 5:16

Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed.
