Sin: Why you should keep practicing even if you miss the mark


1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


Discuss / describe one way you consistently miss the mark in your relationship with God. One behavior or attitude that does not meet His expectation in your life.


Lord, as a sinner, I miss the mark everyday in the things I say, think and do. But, like 1 John 1:9 says, if I confess my sin you are faithful and just to forgive me and cleanse me. I recognize that I need to repent, which means to turn and go the other way. Lord, please cleanse my heart so that I can change the way I think and the things I say and do. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
