Where in the Word are you today?
Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy. – Proverbs 28:13 ESV
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)
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. —2 Peter 3:9 (ESV)
Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away. —Acts 3:19 (NLT)
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. —1 John 2:2 (KJV)
“Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, declares the Lord God. Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin. 31 Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord God; so turn, and live.” – Ezekiel 18:30-32 ESV
Trusting with the heart leads to righteousness, and confessing with the mouth leads to salvation. —Romans 10:10 (CEB)
And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. —Acts 2:21 (ESV)
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. —Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)
