Unconfessed Sin

Trash is made up of household waste; smelling garbage, I want to turn away. Recently, I noticed dilapidated dumpsters placed side-by-side. The signs on front read: ‘Get Rid Of It’! The dumpster lids were open and containers appeared to be full.

Apparently their customers took the company slogan seriously; the business had trash and they got rid of it.

Are we allowing sin to build up in our lives?

Let’s get rid of it.

“Therefore, since we also have such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let’s rid ourselves of every obstacle and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let’s run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking only at Jesus, the originator and perfecter of the faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB).”

Like King David, I should rid my life of any unconfessed sin.

“Be gracious to me, God, according to Your faithfulness;
According to the greatness of Your compassion, wipe out my wrongdoings.
Wash me thoroughly from my guilt
And cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my wrongdoings,
And my sin is constantly before me.
Against You, You only, I have sinned
And done what is evil in Your sight,
So that You are justified when You speak
And blameless when You judge (Psalm 51:1-4 NASB).”

All can be forgiven and cleansed.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous, so that He will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 NASB).”
