The Bible tells us in James 5 to "confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working."
Confession is one of the most powerful gifts God has given us. It is by confession that we are saved. (Romans 10:10) It is by confession that we are healed. When we confess our sin we are saying that God is right and we are not. It is humbling our selves. It is the killing of our flesh just as Jesus tells us to take up our cross and follow him. But confession can be hard especially because it is exactly the opposite of what our flesh wants. Confess exposes our nakedness and our natural instinct is to protect that nakedness and to cover it up. But when we hide we allow our sins and wrong ways of thinking to live on instead of being cut away. In this episode, we talk all about the power of confession and how it can be done well in our marriages.
