Two ideas from the sermon reverberated into today.
- 1) I need to come before God in humble confession.
I hardly ever truly and humbly confess. I'm half-hearted when I do.
- 2) I need to confess before my brothers and sisters and hear them proclaim me forgiven.
"Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me." Psalm 51:2-3 (ESV)
"Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool." Isaiah 1:18 (ESV)
