"Nuturing Your Faith"
Nuturing Your Faith is a new Bible Study from the Lutheran Hour Ministires. A steady practice of confessing one's sins to God is both fitting and liberating for the sinner. In session three of Nuturing Your Faith, instances of confession are explored as they apprear in the Old and New Testaments. Throughout the Scriptures, we are reminded to include this act of contrition in our own lives as well.
On a human level, confessing our sins can be, well, demoralizing, to say the least. When sharing our secret blunders with someone else, there's always the chance of irreparably altering the relationship with our disclosure or, worse yet, being rejected althgether. We can hope our confidant will understand, but there are no guarantees.
With God, however, the situation is entirely different. He invites our confession and offers abundant grace to those who penitently seek Him. The chronicler writes, "If My people who are called by My Name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face and turm from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14). God alone can deal with our sins appropriately and does so through the forgiveness He offers us in His Son, Jesus.
Bible Study on 1 Peter will start on January 9th. Led by Pastor Emeritus Earl Zimmerman. All are welcome!
