Freedom in Confession
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
Confession is an interesting thing. Until you have confessed with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, you can not be saved, Romans 10:9. So clearly if it is important enough that you confess that Christ is Lord to know Him, then what about our sins? Acts 3:19 says that we need to repent of our sins and they will be wiped away.
We know at Table for One Ministries that as a single adult, having a community surrounding you and supporting you is vital. You need a place where you can share your sins with others and let others pray for you. That opportunity comes through a small group. If you don’t have one, find a place where you can join a small group, hopefully with other single adults that share your same walk of life.
“Why a small group?” people ask. Sunday School, Bible Study, Cell Groups, whatever you call them, they are small groups of believers joining together to study God’s Word and share their burdens. These are safe places to confess sins to one another. Challenge yourself as a participant to show up to each meeting with a real prayer request for the group to pray for you and come prepared to pray for others.
