The Bible tells us to confess our sins. We need to confess to those around us, not for forgiveness, but for freedom. We need people around us to help care for us, guide us, and keep us safe. It’s why the New Testament encouraged public confessions of sin. This wasn’t meant as a public shaming but as a public support system. It was one believer looking at his family of believers saying, this is where I am weak and need help. Then, the loving church would wrap around him and be the support needed.
Who do you share your struggles with? Is it someone who knows the scripture. Is it someone who will help you stay strong? Do you have a church family that can wrap around you and be the support you need?
