The Daily Grace - In Confession, There is Restoration

Spiritually, when sin and failure break our relationship with God and sideline our service, determination alone is not what restores us to rightness with God and usefulness in His Kingdom. When we are side-lined because of sin, the path to a comeback is confession as well. "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9)

For us to be able to recover from our spiritual failings, we are absolutely dependent on the One who gave Himself for us. And, that gives us hope. Christ, who died for us, loves us with an everlasting love and will respond with grace as we confess our faults to Him.

Through confession, we can find His gracious restoration - the greatest of all comebacks. Confession is the path that leads to restoration. We have a great comeback with Christ if we confess our sins. Remember, we are already washed by the Blood of the Lamb.
