If We...

Like most Monday's, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I let you know about my Lord's Day.  And, whatever else I did.  Today, will be no different.

Even though I had another short night's sleep, I got up in time to get ready to get together with my church family.

One thing I am happy about, is the fact that I am able to attend a Bible study class, that is held before our worship service.  Like normal, I did that.

Once again we had a wonderful worship service.  And, my pastor's preaching was fabulous!

Being March 1st, the first SONday of the month, we had communion, at the end of our worship service. 

This is truly fabulous to me.  Not just because we are honouring Him, but also because it gives me a chance to confess silently, before taking communion.

Some people don't think we need to do this.  But, I do.

One of the best pastors I ever had in the past, made it clear to us that we need to review what we do, daily.  And, confess to God. 

At times, even repent... meaning turning away from sin.

I try to do this on a regular basis.  And, even find myself doing this, after any contact with anyone, for any reason.

Thinking about confessing, as I discussed here today, brought to mind 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."

Yes, we need to confess.

Does this mean, that we have to confess to another human being?  Absolutely, not.

We need to confess to Him.  Either silently, or by talking aloud to Him.

So, after being served where I am seated, I take the time to pray.  To confess to God.  And, to thank Him for everything He provides for me.

Does this make me a perfect person?  No.

He said that there is no person that is perfect.  Not one.

So, my friend... don't consider yourself perfect.  You're not.

Just be obedient, to God's calling.  And, you will be blessed.


Until next time...
