Bible Commentary for 1 John 1:9

Wesley's Notes for 1 John 1:9


1:9 But if with a penitent and believing heart, we confess our sins, he is faithful - Because he had promised this blessing, by the unanimous voice of all his prophets. Just - Surely then he will punish: no; for this very reason he will pardon. This may seem strange; but upon the evangelical principle of atonement and redemption, it is undoubtedly true; because, when the debt is paid, or the purchase made, it is the part of equity to cancel the bond, and consign over the purchased possession. Both to forgive us our sins - To take away all the guilt of them. And to cleanse us from all unrighteousness - To purify our souls from every kind and every degree of it.

    I lived thinking about my parents and how they thought of me, but now I try to think about how God sees me, and be pure in his eyes and in the eyes of my parents.

    Proverbs 16:7, "When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him."

    Maddie, even though this Proverb may not seem relevant, I think it shows us that if we please the Lord by doing his Will & exuding Christ-likeness, then even our enemies will not be able to deny our position & of those who can rationalize this new behaviour, will confess that it is the Lord Who hath done this.

    I'm sure your parents never thought ill of you, rather it was your desire to present yourself in the best light to them. What matters, as you say, is how God sees you - His precious child, & this is all that matters - He will take care of the rest - even using your life & words to testify of His goodness.

  • Steve on 1 John 1:9
    I believe that we must confess all our sins to God. I don 't believe that this falls under works. I believe this is out of love for what Christ has done for us on the cross and to repent of our sins which is to turn from sin and to turn to God. This is not works this is choice. We do this out of conviction of our sin because God is in us.
  • James on 1 John 1:9
    jesus died for our salvation healing and forgiveness but we have to appropriate salvation by receiving jesus.it is not an automatic.people who say I don 't have to confess my sins must also believe that they are saved since jesus provided it don 't have to receive jesus.this is error you are healed saved forgiven but you have to make a withdrawal by acting confessing sin.faith without works is dead reply to Arthur comments
