Confession Of Sins

Fri­day. The Lord scor­neth the scorn-ers: but He giveth grace unto the low­ly (Prov. 3:34). Par­tic­u­lar­ly re-member these words when you go to con­fes­sion. Noth­ing like pride binds your tongue to keep it from say­ing, “I am a sin­ner.” Hum­ble your­self before the Lord, do not spare your­self, do not fear the face of man. Reveal your shame for it to be washed; show your wounds for them to be healed; tell of all your unright­eous­ness that you be justi-fied. The more mer­ci­less you will be with your­self, the more com­pas­sion the Lord will show towards you, and you will leave with a sweet feel-ing of for­give­ness. This is that grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, giv­en from Him to those who hum­ble them-selves through sin­cere con­fes­sion of their sins.
