Is Confessing Enough?


I have just read a question from someone else to you and need to check something. Basically it was asking about sin and you said obviously we need to confess our sins.

Most times when I sin, like laugh at someone else’s misfortune or say something nasty I immediately think I shouldn’t have done that and say sorry to the Lord in my head. Is this enough? What should I be doing if not?

Thank you very much, all the questions and your answers are helping me greatly.


The Lord knows the motives of our heart and can tell if we’re being honest with Him. (Hebrews 4:12) If you’re sincerely sorry when you say you are, then you’re doing enough. If your actions hurt someone’s feelings, the polite thing would be to tell them you’re sorry too.
