Confess Our Sins Before God


2 Samuel 19:16-20

The Story

The rebellion of Absalom was quashed many months later.

David was returning home with his men.

As they crossed the Jordan, old Shimei and his men came to him.

Shimei fell at David's feet in humility.

He made a full and complete confession of his wrong in his attack on David.

And he hoped that David would forgive him.

Lessons

We have all sinned against others.

And we are to do exactly what Shimei did.

We are to go to the person we have offended and confess our sins and seek forgiveness.

Remember...

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (I John 1:9).

Would you come to God and confess your sins against Him?
