20 Truths from ‘Spiritual Detox: Discovering the Joy of Liberating Confession’

18. Scripture is alive through the Holy Spirit, and as you read and recite it, the Holy Spirit is at work, using it to bring conviction, to highlight sin and align your heart with heaven. God ministers to you as you speak his words back to him. (112)

19. When we seek to hide from others something we’re struggling with deeply, we can’t truly be ourselves around them. It leads to superficial and inauthentic fellowship with other believers. They can’t strengthen and encourage you in the ways you need. (117)

20. Confession doesn’t have to be perfect. Ours certainly isn’t. It just needs to be real, authentic and honest. God is inviting you to experience the inexpressible joy of deeper fellowship with him. Don’t miss out. (118)
