Day Three: Faithful To Forgive

1 John 1:9 (NIV)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

“We know that we have sinned, Father, against heaven and before you, and are no more worthy to be called your children. But there is forgiveness, mercy, and redemption with you. You will not despise a broken and a contrite heart. Though heaven is your throne, and the earth your footstool, still you will look to the poor and humble person who trembles at your word. You revive the spirit of the humble, and the heart of the contrite. The ones who cover their sins will not prosper, yet those that confess and forsake them will find mercy. You have said that if we confess our sins, you are faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Amen.” (Matthew Henry, A Method for Prayer)

No matter the sins we committed and are ashamed of, our Father God is faithful to forgive and cleanse us when we admit and come clean about our sins, rather than covering up.

Spend a moment in prayer confessing and repenting of sins that the Spirit is revealing to you.

Prayer: Father, I am so thankful that you are faithful and just to forgive me when I confess my sins to you. Thank you for your mercy. Purify me from all unrighteousness. In Jesus’ name, amen.
