Forgiveness is Conditional

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.

"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." ~Proverbs 28:13

Though God’s love is UNCONDITIONAL, God’s forgiveness is CONDITIONAL. His forgiveness only comes AFTER our confession.

To confess our sins means we see them as God sees them, we see ourselves in the mirror of His Word not the mirror of our pride.

We can’t see our sins until we accept what the Bible says about them, instead of what the world says about them:

We can’t come to God on our own terms!
