Jeremiah 6:14 - "You can't heal a wound by saying it's not there."
Did you every deny that you've done wrong? For many, denial turns to shame and guilt. Denial, according to pastor John Baker, is a "false system of beliefs that are not based on reality" and a "self-protecting behavior that keeps us from honestly facing the truth." Before we can be restored to God and take the first step of our recovery, we must first face and admit our denial.
Jesus tells us, "Know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (John 8:32).
"God is light, in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son purifies us from all sin." (1 John 1: 5-7)
