Getting Clean

1 John 1:9 (New American Standard Bible)
9If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Sometimes after a long day at the beach when you are heading home covered in sand and suntan oil it feels so good to get in the shower and get clean. When you have been working in the yard on a very hot and sticky day there is no better feeling than jumping in a pool of water and just let the water refresh and revitalize you. It feels so good to get clean. The only thing better than getting clean is coming clean. What do I mean by that? Well we come clean when we confess our sins and let God cleanse us. The word for confess in the Greek simply means to agree. So when we confess we are not revealing secret sins to our God but admitting that we are guilty of committing them. Then and only then can God cleanse us and make us truly clean. We can not BEAR our sins alone.
I welcome your comments, thoughts, prayer requests.....
