We continued the Sync series today with Pastor Tom speaking on “Syncing Through Confession”.
- Matthew 18:15-17
- 1 John 1:8-9
- James 5:16
- Luke 15:11-24
Pastor Tom challenged us to not think:
Confession = ‘gottcha’ – people pointing figures at you calling out your mistakes
but to think:
Confession = a huddle; a group of people with whom you can be honest and accountable
Other key points:
- The purpose of confession is not exposure, it’s restoration
- Confession begins with ‘I’m sorry’
- Confession begins in safety and ends in freedom
- Realize that God is in the business of transforming lives not condemning them
So, is there anything you need to confess today?
