Verse of the Day: 1 John 1:9
If we confess our sin, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Unconfessed sin can be a stumbling block that keeps you from getting closer to God. The Bible says, The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29) Even on your best days there may be sin in your life. When you pray, humbly come before the Lord and honestly confess your sins relying on His mercy and forgiveness through the righteousness of Christ. God is merciful and ready to forgive so don’t let unconfessed sin come between you and the Lord.
Verse of the Day: Colossians 4:2
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
One of the ways to build your relationship with God is to spend time with Him in prayer. It is the most personal way to experience God but often we forget, are too busy, lack spiritual discipline or are just plain too lazy to pray, but prayer is too important to neglect. Come to God with praise and thanksgiving, confess your sins and bring your requests to Him. Pray about anything and everything. Nothing is too big or too small for God. The important thing is to dedicate time each and every day to talk with the Lord and to listen to what He has to say to you.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 51:2 (NLT)
Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin.
There isn’t anything you can do to earn God’s forgiveness. You are forgiven because of who God is not who you are. God sent His only Son to pay the price for your sins. You need to confess that you are a sinner who needs a Savior and believe that Jesus died to save you. You can let go of the guilt you’ve been carrying because God has forgiven you and now it’s time to forgive yourself.
