Confession, Forgiven and Fee.
Psalm 32:1-5 David speaks of physical and emotional distress when a person refuses to acknowledge or tries to cover up and deny their sin. It literally drains their vitality.
a – Call sin, sin– Psalm 32:3-7 When i Kept Silent about my sin
Our natural condition is that we were “dead” in sin, God’s wrath, utterly depraved, helpless and hopeless (Ephesians 2:1-3) The basis of salvation is wholly God’s mercy and grace – nothing more (Ephesians 2:4-9).
b – Call sin forgiven
Hebrews 10:10-14 Christ’s death was once for all sin for all time, perfecting the sanctified
Romans 5:8-11 Christ’s death 2000 years ago paid for all sin committed previous to the cross and
subsequent to the cross.
c – Call on God to change you
If there is no discipline for someone, continuing in sin, then this person must not, and never did, belong to Christ (Hebrews 12:5-11)
It should be noted that sin affects our fellowship not our relationship.
God is grieved when His children come back to Him for forgiveness time and again for gross and
besetting sin – but still His grace is sufficient. However, God is even more grieved if we turn away or fail to come to Him because we feel we have gone too far as though Christ’s atonement is insufficient.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed John 8:36
