1 John 1:9 

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


There is an admirable quality that someone can have that we all enjoy when we experience it. When someone can genuinely acknowledge that they were wrong, in humility, and apologize with sincerity, it is like taking a breath of fresh air. We typically view ourselves as completely inept when it comes to this capability, especially when it comes to accepting an apology and forgiving.


Have you ever just told the Lord you were sorry?


We usually pray and present our requests to the Lord, which is what we should do. However, we can often say, “Lord why is this the way it is”, or we say, “Lord I ask you for this, I need this, they need that.” But have you ever said, “Lord I’m sorry I said that, and did that this way.” Do you sincerely apologize to the Lord for the way you have treated Him?


If you confess your sins, and from your heart tell the Lord you are struggling, admit to the Lord that you are responding wrongly, and make it right with whomever it needs to be made right with, you will be forgiven. You can be cleansed from all unrighteousness, and the peace of God follows that.


Saying you are sorry is the hardest thing you will ever do in your life, and most likely you will do it multiple times a week. However, I know of nothing in this life that is more satisfactory than knowing you have asked forgiveness, and sincerely said you were sorry. With every action and decision, there are consequences; and we have to deal with those consequences. Taking the responsibility for our actions with forgiveness is a wonderful thing in the Lord’s eyes.


If you need to, say you are sorry.


56-0805 - “The Church And Its Condition”

Now, as you humble your heart, repent now. Tell God you're sorry; you won't do it no more, you're ashamed of yourself, the way you've acted. And then I'm going to pray for you. And I believe, right then, peace will just settle over your heart, just peace like a river will come flowing down to your soul. You might not be shouting; you might not be speaking with tongues; you might not be jumping up and down; but you'll leave away from the altar with Something in you, Something in you that'll anchor you to the old rugged cross as long as you live. Now, pray, as I do; confess.
