If I have a car, I need to do certain things to keep my car running smoothly. I need to change the oil, make sure the tires are filled with air and keep enough fluid in the radiator. These things are called “maintenance.”
When we become a Christian, we need to do some maintenance to help us grow spiritually. We need to pray and study God’s Word. We also need to confess our sins and repent.
Our Bible Reading today talks about confession and repentance. We may look at other Christians and think that they are doing something wrong. But before we criticize them for what they are doing, we need to get rid of the wrong things in our lives. We need to tell God what we have done wrong and ask Him to forgive us.
Be humble before God today. Examine your life, confess your sins and ask for forgiveness. God will forgive you and help you grow in Him.
