I knew a man who took drugs for many years. Finally, he realized that he needed to stop using drugs and give his life to God. It was hard for this man to change his life and give up drugs. Even after he made the decision to live for God, he was still tempted to take drugs. He had to depend on God to help him every day.
Every person on earth has sinned. We all face temptations every day. If we continue to live a life of sin, we will be separated from God. But our Bible Reading today tells us how we can stay close to God.
Verse 9 says, “But if we confess our sins, God will forgive us. We can trust God to do this. He always does what is right. He will make us clean from all the wrong things we have done.” If we want to be close to God, we need to confess our sins. Then God will forgive us.
Maybe you are struggling with sin today. Ask God to forgive you and help you stay away from sin. You can trust God to help and strengthen you.
