Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Confession

March 2nd, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is confession.

James 5:16 instructs us to “confess our sins to each other and pray for each other so that we may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

In confession, we admit the wrongs that we have committed. In confession to God, we agree with Him about our sinful actions and seek His forgiveness.

Sometimes, it is necessary to go to a person we have wronged and to ask their forgiveness. At other times, we may seek the support of another believer to help us overcome a perpetual sin. Confession opens the way for addictions to be broken and strained relationships to be healed.

Confession is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
