I’ve been thinking about how we confess our sins these days…planning a message series on it for Connexus later in 08, and thinking about preaching a series on this literally for years. As we head into Easter next month, I’m thinking it might be good to blog a bit about it.
When it comes to talking to God and others about your sin, what’s your approach? Are you a frequent flyer on the subject, or is it more like a trip to the museum (rare and a bit boring)?
For me, I tend to oscillate between confessing a bit excessively (if that’s possible) and confessing little to nothing. One can lead to despair and lack of hope; the other to pride and indifference. Neither is healthy.
What’s your experience with confession? Do you confess your sins a lot, a little, rarely? What do you find frustrating about the subject.
P.S. I wonder if I should call this the lost post of confession. I wrote
this post early this morning and it completely disappeared. Wonder if
the subject is a threat to anyone/anything. Or maybe I hit the delete key. I rewrote it because I know I need to talk
about it anyway!
