Confession, Forgiveness, Cleansing

Psalm 51
David  confesses 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.
