Right after God saved me in 1986 I was taught to confess and repent of my sins as a way of walking before the Lord. What this does is keeps us in fellowship with God. Unconfessed and unrepented of sins drive a wedge between us and God spiritually. This lack of fellowship causes many spiritual maladies that cause many undesirable issues in Christians. To be in a close walk with God is vital. This missive by Steve Camp is a must read for the Christian who desires that Spirit-led walk with our Lord.
