How Confession Brings Calm to Chaos
(Part 1 of 3)
1. First you need to understand why confession helps to regain your balance.
What are laws for? The whole world uses laws To Create Order. The Bible tells us that the law is To Give Life (Galatians 3:21)
What happens when we disobey the law?
Chaos: confusion or disorder
God has given his people laws or commands to live by in the Bible. To be clear, we don't try to follow the commands to earn salvation. Based on the above text, what are laws or commands for?
ANSWER: To Bring ORDER. To Give Life.
I know most of us don't like rules. But when you understand that Laws bring order and life, it helps us see that God is trying to keep us out of turmoil and/or DRAMA!!
Is that a fresh way to look at God's commands? It took me a long time to understand that too.
Pray about it, if you are struggling to receive it.
2. Sin is failing to obey God's family rules or commands.
So what is the big deal if you sin? Sin throws your life into Chaos.
The first one might not create Chaos. But once you get away with it, you tend to continue doing it. Suddenly you have to keep straight what's the truth and what's a lie. Either you are terrible at it and you get caught.
Or worse, you are good at it, and you become a habitual liar or a con artist.
Talking behind a person's back can make you feel powerful and connected to the other people you are gossiping with.
Big deal. The other person doesn't even know you were talking about them. Unless...someone slips and shares something you said. Then a fight breaks out.
Or the next time you are around the person you gossiped about, you feel guilty. You question whether that weird look she gave you was because she knows what you said. And the mind chaos begins.
3. Why does confessing sin bring Order and Life?
Choosing to Sin literally sucks the light out of our hearts and lets darkness enter in. The Darkness comes in to kill and destroy. (John 10:10)
Confessing. Means You are choosing Jesus (the Light) and Rejecting Darkness.
Why a Confession Cleanse Works
The Father, Son, & Holy Spirit are allowed to bring light into dark areas of our lives.
