THIS COMING SUNDAY

TO OBTAIN MERCY
Acts 3:17-21
Pastor Mark Bergin

God has promised that he will meet every confession of sin with forgiveness and cleansing. But how do we know when we have truly confessed? Is a verbal acknowledgement of sin always a confession? Hardly. True confession proves itself only in obedience. Because true confession is change in allegiance, a turning from some false master to the true master of our souls. To confess truly is to step into the hands of Christ, to obtain his mercy, to be filled with his light, and to walk in his ways. A person who claims to have confessed and yet persists in disobedience has neither confessed not received mercy. The forgiveness of God always bears the fruit of obedience. Our obedience never earns forgiveness but always follows it.
