“And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
HEBREWS 10:19–22 NLT”

Know how dangerous it is to believe that being right with God hangs on your ability to confess every sin. Without the assurance of complete forgiveness, we will remain sin-conscious, burdened with guilt and shame, condemned by the enemy, joyless, and totally insecure about our salvation. (And not be able to pray effectively)
I confess my righteousness knowing that all my sins are already forgiven. I don’t confess my sins to be forgiven. I acknowledge and “repent”(Metanoia-to change direction) and ask Holy Spirit to continue in the transforming process as my mind continues to be renewed. Because we have a close relationship with our heavenly Father in the new covenant, I can be honest with Him when I’ve done wrong. I can talk to Him about it, apply His grace for my weakness, and move forward knowing full well that He has already forgiven me through His Son’s sacrifice, and Holy Spirit is on point to complete the transformation.

Believe right and live right! I love you all very much!(NLM)
