“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Confess our sins
Sin is something that God desires that we don’t do, or something that God doesn’t desire that we do. We can try to hide these “sins”, but God sees everything. If God knows everything, then what is the point in telling Him? God desires to have communications with us. God may already know. But God rejoices when we communicate those things to Him.
God who forgives
God has very high standards. God despises sin. However, God loves the sinners(us). No matter what sin you may have on your heart, let’s go before God who is ready to forgive us.
