The sermon series at our church right now is Confession. I have really gotten alot out of each week and the main thing that keeps convicting me is how much I agree with God about my sin. You see, to confess means to say the same thing about or to agree. That is stepping all over my toes because so many times I return to my sin because it does something for me or because I like it, in other words I don’t truly agree with God about it or I would be disgusted and avoid it.
My favorite analogy about this concept has to do with something that I really hate-onions. I don’t like them at all and so therefore I avoid them at all costs. I don’t buy them, order them in my food or keep them handy in my fridge. It’s my prayer that God will help me to feel the same way about my sin as He does and to avoid it at all costs (like I do onions).
When I can agree with God about the sin in my life then I can experience true confession and begin to live life in freedom.
well it took something really noteworthy to get me back on this blog. I have actually been very busy with some projects and writing on the blog we have set up for the book which is http://www.inourshoesthestudy.wordpress.com or maybe that is backwards but you can find it there.
Anyway, the thing that has gotten me back onto this blog is two-fold. One, my daughter kelsey has written for a blog that I’m impressed with and you can find that blog entry at http://josiahroad.com/blog/entry/key-chain-servant/…she went with me when i was speaking at a church in Kentucky this past weekend and the ladies just loved her. They also bought some keychains so she is much closer to getting that orphanage built in Haiti!
The second motivation for me is all that God is doing in some other areas of my life. Jennifer and I have gotten some invitations to come and share in relation to the Bible Study that came out this year and we are so excited about that. Tomorrow, Thursday Sept 17, we are doing a radio interview with Marnie Swedberg on blogtalk radio, so please pray for us and listen in if you want to:) you can find it online at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/MarniesFriends/2009/09/17/Marnies-Friends and it is live at 3 eastern time….
