Hi! The Word says: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). To live with a repentant heart is important because we are sinful man, but God always forgives us. True repentance is a turning away and going into a different direction, which takes more than just confessing, but confessing is the first step. I think it is important for us to confess our sins because, for myself, I have now exposed light to an area of sin in my life which leads to freedom, like the scripture says, “he will purify us from all unrighteousness.” Why keep it in when you can get it out?!
