When Sin Is Confessed


2 Samuel 12:13

The Story

When David heard the charges, his mind suddenly became clear. For the first time in many months, he could see the situation as it was. And he made a full and honest confession.

As soon as David confessed, he was told that his sins had been forgiven and he would not be put to death as the Law demanded (Lev. 20:10). God had taken David's sins away from him. Instead of justice, David had received mercy and grace. He had been forgiven and pardoned!

The time of alienation from God was over. David was restored.

Lessons

This is how God always operates. When sin is confessed openly and honestly, it is forgiven by the Lord God. And God removed its stain from our lives (1 John 1:9).

Remember...

We must deal with our sins in open and honest confession. Only then will God forgive and restore us.

  2. God's grace be with you brother! I myself believe that God is a merciful and loving God.. God's simple plan of salvation is thru Christ.. God gave us Jesus to shoulder our sins, that by believing in Christ we will be free of our sins..
