1 John 1:9

 
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

Unconfessed sin puts a gap in our defenses and lowers our shield. Our enemy exploits our weakened defenses and mounts an attack. Confessing our sin restores us and the attack is repelled. So it will be all of our earthly lives, for we are aliens behind enemy lines. And though our enemy surrounds us, the Lord is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. It is He who arms us with strength and makes our way perfect.

One day, we will be delivered from these countless attacks and God will take back that which is rightfully His. Then those of us who belong to Jesus will be elevated to the status of kings.

And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth" (Revelation 5:9, 10).
