       1. What does "confess" mean?

       
       2. Suppose you confess a sin, but it still troubles you
	  Does that mean you are not forgiven?


	  If you ask God again to forgive you for the same sin
	  you already confessed, what are you actually saying
	  about God?


	  What does God do with our confessed sins?  1 John 1:9

	  Suggestion:  Any time old sin comes back to trouble you,
	  just praise God for forgetting it and for Jesus' blood paying
	  for it.
