Traits Of A Disciple: Confession
How enthusiastic are we about Jesus Christ, Savior of the World? Are we enthusiastic enough to live into the discipleship trait that means we have to admit when we’re wrong or made a mistake?
Self-righteousness is a failure in discipleship….because it draws us away from relationship with God.
The opposite practice of self-righteousness is confession – which we find is a necessary component to discipleship because it is the way we are:
- Honest with ourselves…and
- Honest with God
Confession is the spiritual discipline that allows us to enter into the grace and mercy of God. And that’s how we experience healing from the past.
