Confession of sin–a sermon with seven texts

Confession of sin–a sermon with seven texts

“I have sinned.” 
Exodus 9:27; 
Numbers 22:34;
 1 Samuel 15:24; 
Joshua 7:20; 
Matthew 27:4; 
Job 7:20; 
Luke 15:18.

Suggested Further Reading: 
Psalm 51

Unless there be a true and hearty confession of our sins to God, we have no promise that we shall find mercy through the blood of the Redeemer. 

“Whoso confesseth (his sins) and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” 
But there is no promise in the Bible to the man who will not confess his sins.

 Yet, as upon every point of Scripture there is a liability of being deceived, 
so more especially in the matter of confession of sin. 

There are many who make a confession, 
and a confession before God, 
who notwithstanding receive no blessing, 
because their confession has not in it certain marks which are required by God to prove it genuine and sincere, 
and which demonstrate it to be the work of the Holy Spirit.

the hardened sinner–pharaoh. 
It is of no use for you to say, 
“I have sinned,” 
merely under the influence of terror, 
and then to forget it afterwards.

the double-minded man—balaam. 
It is idle and useless for you to say, 
“I have sinned,” 
unless you mean it from your heart.

the insincere man—saul. 
To say, “I have sinned,” in an unmeaning manner, 
is worse than worthless, 
for it is a mockery of God thus to confess with insincerity of heart.

the doubtful penitent—achan. 
The most we can say is, that we hope their souls are saved at last, 
but indeed we cannot tell.

the repentance of despair—judas.
If you have such a repentance as that, 
it will be a warning to generations yet to come.

the repentance of the saint—job. 
This is the repentance of the man who is a child of God already, 
an acceptable repentance before God.

the blessed confession—the prodigal. 
Here is that which proves a man to be a regenerate character–“Father, I have sinned.”

For meditation: 

All have sinned. (Romans 3:23) 
“Thou art the man” (2 Samuel 12:7); 
but which one?

Sermon no. 113
18 January (1857)

If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, 
you can be accepted into his kingdom.
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.


 God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 

who died for me to make me free of sin, 

I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, 

I confess that He is the son of God. 

I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand 

your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live 

on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 

In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.
~ C. H. Spurgeon ~

The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God, without acquiring any monetary reward. 
God gave me the salvation for free, so I share the gospel of his word the same way ..
