Confession

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. - 1 Timothy 6:12

In the Bible, the word "confess" means "to speak the same thing." So when it tells us to confess, it means we're to say the same thing God says—to agree with Him—about the attitudes and actions of our lives.

As you can see, then, confession has two aspects: speaking the truth about ourselves and the truth about God.

For example, if we're confessing greed, we can also confess God's promise to supply our needs.  The Bible says the same God who takes care of you will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to you in Christ Jesus.

"We own up to minor failings, but only so as to convince others that we have no major ones." - La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)
