Confession is necessary, but it is not enough unless confession is connected with repentance.
But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins
. . . he shall surely live—Ezekiel 18:21
Confession is making our sins known—to God, to wives, to trusted brothers. Repentance is turning away from those sins.
Repentance is turning toward God. It’s a willingness to become new men, loyal followers. Confession is critical, but it’s only the first step. Repentance is the ultimate step.
Confession requires courage & repentance requires a willing heart.
Without repentance, we continue in our sin. Without repentance, we continue on our own path . . . toward death. Jesus said “unless you repent, you will all likewise perish” - Luke 13:3
