Something to think about.
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 (ESV)
We may think this verse is about confession and cleansing, which it is, but it is more about faithfulness. It is about God’s continual faithfulness in forgiving us of our sin. We could confess into eternity, but if He were not faithful to forgive, our confession would be pointless.
