his sin. He prays for God's forgiveness. Confession and forgiveness -
the two go together. We confess our sins. God forgives our sin.
Forgiveness is God's gift. He gives his gift when we confess our sins to
him - "God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our
sins, he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we’ve done wrong!
(1 John 1:9). When we confess our sins and receive God's forgiveness, we rejoice in this: "the blood of God's Son, Jesus, cleanses us from every sin" (1 John 1:7).
We give thanks to God: His gift of forgiveness is not only for the
beginning of our life of faith - "The vilest offender, who truly
believes, that moment, from Jesus, a pardon receives." It's for the
whole of our journey of faith. The blood of Jesus keeps on cleansing us
from all sin.
