“We confess to acknowledge the truth – and that draws us closer to God.”

June 24, 2018

We often think of confession as something to be either avoided or endured. We don’t want to think of ourselves as being “that bad.” But when we confess our sins to God, we acknowledge the truth of our imperfection and the holiness of God. In doing so, it draws us deeper into Him and frees us to live more authentic lives.
