CONFESS IT By Bishop Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Daniel 9:1-10
“Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.” – Romans 2:1
The Bible says that you are actually practising the same things over which you judge another. I believe that everything I have been accused about is true in principle. I actually feel that they are true and I endeavour to confess my sins every day.
If someone accused me of stealing the church’s money, I would believe it is true. Perhaps I have taken money that I was not aware of? Perhaps I have mismanaged some of God’s money? Perhaps I have wasted the church’s money? Perhaps I have overpaid myself? Perhaps I have enjoyed luxuries that were not right? How could I tell? In all honesty, my sinful nature is real and I cannot deny it even though I am a preacher. That is why I confess my sins every day.
If someone accused me of adultery, I would believe that it is true and I would confess my sins. I cannot deny much because Scripture says that if you look on a woman to lust after her you have already committed adultery (Matthew 5:28). I must have done this many times over and I always pray for mercy for my soul.
If somebody accused me of witchcraft, I would agree because rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft (1 Samuel 15:23). I must have been rebellious against the Lord many times.
We must be like Daniel who confessed these terrible sins in the first person. He believed he had committed them. His thinking was not, “I am greatly loved by the Lord. I am a great prophet of God.” His thoughts were more, “I am a sinner who needs the grace of God.”
Start your day with a blessing from the WORD!!!
STAY CONNECTED AND PROSPER
