First John Devotional 8

“If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 Joh 1:8). You are prideful, and it is difficult to admit sin, sinful thoughts and behavior. However, admitting your sinfulness, even though you are already forgiven, reopens a meaningful relationship with Jesus because, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” But, “If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us” (1 Joh 1:9-10).
