Celebration of Discipline :: Confession

The Discipline of Confession

“Love, not anger, brought Jesus to the cross. Golgotha came as a result of God’s great desire to forgive, not his reluctance.”

“Jesus refused the customary painkiller when it was offered him. He wanted to be completely alert for this greatest work of redemption.”

“God has given us brothers and sisters to stand in Christ’s stead and make God’s presence and forgiveness real to us.”

“In the Discipline of confession we ask God to give us a yearning for holy living, a hatred for unholy living. We must desire to be conquered by God, or if we do not desire it, to desire to desire it.”

“We do not have to make God willing to forgive. In fact, it is God who is working to make us willing to seek his forgiveness.”

“Honesty leads to confession, and confession leads to change.”
