Confess your faults one to another,and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.
Confess your faults one to another,and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.

"Faye's daily word of encouragement" # 67 Todays word is: Confess"

Definition of the word Confess: To acknowledge your wrong>

Matthews chapter 10 - 32 : Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my father which is in heaven.

Romans chapter 10 -9 : That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Romans chapter 14 - 11 : For it is written ,as I live , saith the Lord ,every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess God.

James chapter 5 - 16 : Confess your faults one to another, and pray one to another, that ye may be healed.  the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

1 John chapter 1 -9 : If we confess our sins , he is faithful and just to forgive  us our sins, and to vleanse us form all unrighteousness.

I realize from reading all the scriptures about how we should confess with our mouth, let's me know that confession is good for the soul.  Jesus said to confess our faults one to another , but SO of us would rather almost die to say we were wrong about something.  If confessing is good for the healing of the soul and body; then I wonder why more us aren't confessing  to each other our wrong doings.

If Jesus tells us to confess to one another, then we as bothers and sisters in Christ should be obedient to his word.  I have always tried to live my life according to the word of God; and if I hurt anyone  in any kind of way, I try to make it right with that person. If I'm wrong then it's up to me to be a women  enough to admit my wrong doings.   I would go to the person , tell them I'm sorry and ask their forgiveness because that's what the word of God say to do.  we must always confess to our sins  Jesus and confess our faults one to another in God.

      It's very admirable that you do all you can to make things right with others, and just as DeBorrah K. Ogans said, this will allow us to get better not bitter. Holding on to such things will only eat us alive. Thanks for the reminders.

      Creativeone, Very Good Hub! We should be willing to want to admit when we are wrong! This allows us to get better not bitter, which also allows healing to take place! Yes, Confession is good for the soul! Good job! Thank you for sharing, Blessings!
