No Sin?

1John 1:8-10 - If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

There is always a way out. God gives us a way out of the sin nature we have. The Bible has shown in so many numerous ways all our faults. The Word of God reveals them. If we don't know what they are, how can we confess them?

Maybe we don't want to know, don't want to confess our sins. Some like them, as we see in general in the world. But what about me...or you? Do we recognize our sins? Do we take the time to confess them? Who do we confess them to? 

We need not go anywhere to confess. It's why Jesus Christ came down from heaven to live among sinful man, so that if we would believe, trust and confess Him...then confess our sins to Him...knowing He would forgive us of them, He would do just that.

So once we have confessed Christ, we can confess our sins regularly to Him. This can be done from our own home. It can be done immediately when we recognize our a car, at a baseball game, at work, on the golf course, when a word is spoken that should not have. You get the idea. God knows...

Jesus would like us all to come to Him, let Him save us before the unthinkable happens, death without Christ. Only He can cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Without Him we are in sin. Sin is a sin is a sin. This is His truth.

A decision for Christ is a choice. We are all sinners. We all need Jesus. If we confess Him as our Savior and confess to Him we are sinners and be mindful of confessing sin daily, we are...cleansed of all unrighteousness.   

Romans 3:10-12 - As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one; there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no, not one.”
