We Confess, He Forgives {Bible Art Journaling}

1 John 1-9 BAJC #10

I have found another inspiring challenge to participate in for 2015. This one is called Bible Art Journaling Challenge and is headed up by one of my online Christian artist friends, Rebekah Jones.

I like this challenge because it is specifically Bible art journaling, so that motivates me to actually work in my Journaling Bible (where I have been rather hit or miss, lacking focus). In this challenge, we are given a verse each week, so I love that.

This verse is a promise, and I am realizing that many of my favorite verses are promises. Because of the shed blood of His Son Jesus, God promises to forgive and cleanse, if we confess our sins. Our part is to confess, His part is to forgive and cleanse. Awesome.

 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

– 1 John 1:9 (ESV)
