Oh Lord, I pray that we will be confronted each time we sin against You and don’t realize we have done so. I know that I am guilty of this so often and if people never say anything about what I have done, I may very well continue to do the same thing over and over again. Thank You, Lord, for helping these people be so bold as to confront me while in sin. Because of their actions, I got back on track with You sooner than I may have otherwise. Truly, You speak through people and I am grateful that You have led these men and women into my life, in order to help me along the way. My desire is to remove the spec out of my own eye, that I might also make mention of other people’s sins. How can I judge another person righteously if I am also in sin and have not gotten right with You on this matter? I know that I would be doing so much wrong if I did this while in sin. Therefore, help me to confess my sins, that You might help me turn from them. Then, can I righteously judge people with the Holy Spirit in me. I love You, Lord. I trust in You, God. Amen.
Leviticus 5:17-19 (KJV)
17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the Lord; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.
18 And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance wherein he erred and wist it not, and it shall be forgiven him.
19 It is a trespass offering: he hath certainly trespassed against the Lord.
It is important to find out when we have sinned against God. To be confronted about these sins is necessary.
