Day 11, Week 2: A Pure Heart (Soil and Water)
Today’s scripture passage:
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 NIV
Have you ever tried the ACTS prayer method? ACTS stands for adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication or seeking. This method is helpful to me, because I spend too much time asking and not enough time praising, thanking, or confessing. When I confess specific sins, I feel more accountable to work on them. They’re out in the open, not hidden anymore. In confession I agree with God that my sins are hurting me and others, and I agree to actively work on the problem. I feel purified, like nothing stands between God and me anymore.
If you confessed your sins to God more often, how might it purify your heart?
