1 John 1:9 NIV If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. I admit I felt pride as one of my cousins led worship this morning. When the words on the PowerPoint didn't match or even project, he quickly adapted. He restarted the hymn. He read directly from his Bible. When it came time to pray, he confessed his own sin of pride when trying to appear as if he has it all together. As he encouraged us to pray and even stand to acknowledge our need for confession and humility before God, I realized how deep the sin of perfectionism runs through our family's veins. But, I was also reminded of the cleansing power of God's forgiveness and how He purifies our spiritual DNA, infusing us with His righteousness. I am blessed to be part of my earthly family and humbled to be included in God's heavenly one.
