"If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
(1 John 1:9)
It's part of our frailty. Part of being human. We mess up... fall short... disappoint... let others (and ourselves) down. In short: we sin. All of us.
But the good news is that God knows that. And God doesn't expect us to be perfect (because it's not possible!). So forgiveness from God abounds - if only we'll ask!
The author of 1 John reminds us of this simple truth. If we confess our sins, God will forgive and cleanse us. Guaranteed. Why? Because God is faithful and just.
