Making Confession a Habit

Introduction

Confession is an important part of a Christian’s life, but it is often something avoided. Our sin can create feelings of shame, guilt, and fear that make us want to hide instead of seek forgiveness and repentance. The very first example of this is seen in Genesis 3, when Adam and Eve disobey God and then hide themselves from God when they hear Him walking in the garden. Then, they hide their bodies from each other when they become aware of their nakedness. 

We are just like those first humans and often run from confession, thinking we can avoid shame, guilt, and fear; but the truth is, confession brings freedom, forgiveness, and grows our relationship with God. 

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2

Throughout this journal challenge, you will be given scripture to read and a short prompt to respond to that will help you learn how to confess sin. I pray that over the next 21 days you would grow closer to God and become more comfortable confessing sin so that you would be able to make it a regular habit in your life.
