We by nature are not good at confession. We hold onto our sin thinking at some point we will know what to do with it or that it will stay unnoticed. Not confessing our sin before Jesus is like carrying around our trash everyday, all day. Who sleeps, eats, exercises, commutes, and works with their literal trash always with them? Confessing is leaving it at the foot of the cross and asking Jesus to take care of it and walking away. “If we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all righteousness.” (1 Jn 1:9)
I love Mondays at our house because it is trash day. All week long I accumulate trash but Mondays I put it out in the morning and by night it is gone. It’s amazing. Jesus invites us to put our trash out daily and He will take care of it. Amazing. So stop carrying your trash and leave it out for Jesus.
