My Word gave many instructions about how to cleanse unclean areas where there was an infestation of leprosy. Sin can be compared to leprosy. Be on guard against infestations of sin in your life.
Confession always precedes cleansing. John wrote, "If you confess your sins then I am faithful and just to forgive you of your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness." I have already purchased your forgiveness and your cleansing when I died on the tree to reconcile you to My Father in heaven. However, when you confess your sins, you place yourself in the position to receive My forgiveness and cleansing.
The way to keep clean from sin is three fold. Spend time with Me daily in prayer and reading My Word. Stay in fellowship with My beloved. Paul wrote that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Ask My Spirit today to reveal to you any sins that you need to confess. Then receive My forgiveness and the cleansing of My blood.
1 JOHN 1:9
