Big, Little, In Between

today's reading.
1 John 1:9   If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Have you ever felt like your sin is too much, too significant, too bad for God to forgive? Have you ever thought to yourself, can God really forgive me? You know, Satan loves it when we allow our thinking to go this direction. So when I start heading down that guilt-driven path, one of the things I like to do is read 1 John 1:9 for a good dose of Truth. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (Thank you, Lord!)

So what does 1 John 1:9 show you about your sin? What about confession and forgiveness? Tami W.
