Recite the memory verse. Consider what you’ve learned through the spiritual discipline this week.
Read Isaiah 53:4-6
These prophetic words of Isaiah refer to Jesus. God sent His own Son to bear our sins because we couldn’t.
List the things He suffered.
List the things Believers gain.
We’ve seen the pain and consequences of hidden and unconfessed sin this week. We’ve also looked at the blessings of confession and forgiveness. Do you consider confession a painful process? Does it compare to Jesus’s pain?
What keeps you from confessing your sins to God? To others?
Which is greater: the pain or the blessing? The cross or the resurrection?
