We’ve all seen a police drama where a criminal is brought into an interrogation room with the hope that he’ll admit to the crime he committed. After hours of questioning and presenting evidence of wrongdoing, one of two things would happen. Either he’d adamantly continue to DENY that he was not at fault or finally break down and CONFESS that he was guilty.
The word “Confess” has an interesting etymological origin in that it is composed of two words of “con” meaning 'with' and “fateri” meaning 'acknowledge, know, declare or admit the validity of' something. So when we confess we are saying that what we have done is wrong.
As today’s verse tells us, we need to admit — that is CONFESS — before God that we are guilty of our sins, and for certain we ALL are guilty of something! However, unlike those that admit their crimes to the police will certainly go to PRISON, those that confess their crimes before God with a contrite heart go to ETERNAL LIFE because Romans 10:10 promises us that “with the mouth (your) confession is made (becomes your) salvation.”
At this point your CON-fession then becomes your PRO-fession, because just as Christ declares you before the Father:
“Whosoever therefore shall
CONFESS me before men,
Him will I CONFESS also before
My Father which is in heaven.”
Likewise as a result of our CONFESSION, “let us (likewise) hold fast our profession (of faith)” [ Hebrews 4:14) ] When you do that, you then will go from CONFESSION TO PROFESSION not just before God, but also before others.
When it comes to YOUR standing before God and the world, are you CONFESSING or DENYING to Christ in your life?
