The Bible says that if you claim you have no sin, you are only fooling yourself and are not living in the truth. But if you confess your sins to God, He is faithful and just to forgive your sins and cleanse you from all wickedness! (See 1. John 1:8-9)
In other words, you need to be willing to sincerely admit your sins and mistakes in order to receive forgiveness and be healed, restored, and changed!
Jesus said; “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.” Luke 5:31-32 NLT
This means, that Jesus did not come for those, even if they call themselves Christians, who think they never sin or do anything wrong and instead blame everyone else for their own sinful actions! It is impossible to help such people!
Because, “If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that His word has no place in our hearts!” 1. John 1:10 NLT
For this reason, the Scriptures say to: “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results!” James 5:16 NLT
