<<own up, come clean>>
It is only sin that is acknowledged and repented of that can be forgiven (1 Jn 1:9).
“you forgave the guilt of my sin” (Ps 32:5, 51:1-4). There is freedom and a cleansing of the
conscience when we own up, even if we must suffer for the mistake. By accepting responsibility
It’s wrong to sin, but just as wrong not to admit it
without making excuses or self-justification healing of relationships can also occur. The conviction by the Holy Spirit can be intense but when acted on brings blessing (Ps 32:3,4; 2 Cor 7:10).
