How can confessing sin improve my relationship with God?

November will be a variety of lessons most of which will be built around

examples drawn from the life of David.

 

Focal Passages: Psalm 32:1-5; 51:1-12

Life Question: How can confessing sin improve my relationship with God?

Biblical Truth: God is quick to respond with forgiveness when we confess our sin.

 

What is sin? SIN is ultimately a violation of God’s law and it always causes separation between the sinner and God.

 

• Can anyone force someone to sin?

 

• What do people attempt to do to get rid of those feelings?

 

David wrote Psalm 51 as a prayer of confession and repentance after a time of rebellion in his life.

 

Confession and repentance restores us into a right relationship with God.

 

Repentance is the other half of confession. Repentance simply means turning around and going the opposite direction.

 

So to restore that right relationship to God, we must confess our sin, ask forgiveness, and repent.
