Why Do We Still Sin and Resist the Lord Despite Frequent Confessions?

God says, “For all that man may have been redeemed and forgiven of his sins, it can only be considered as God not remembering the transgressions of man and not treating man in accordance with his transgressions. However, when man, who lives in a body of flesh, has not been set free from sin, he can only continue to sin, endlessly revealing his corrupt satanic disposition. This is the life that man leads, an endless cycle of sinning and being forgiven. The majority of mankind sin in the day only to confess in the evening. This way, even though the sin offering is forever effective for man, it will not be able to save man from sin. Only half the work of salvation has been completed, for man still has a corrupt disposition. ”

From God’s words, we can see that though we have undergone the Lord’s redemption and our sins have been forgiven, and though the Lord no longer looks upon us as sinful and we confess to priests after sinning, our sinful nature continues to exist; we still often sin and resist the Lord. For example, when other people say or do something that harms our own interests, we hate them; we know full well that God loves those who are honest, yet we often lie and cheat for the sake of our own interests; when blessed by God, we constantly thank God; when beset by disaster, we begin to grumble about God, and we might even judge and betray God. This shows us that if our sinful nature remains unresolved, we will still live in the vicious cycle of sinning in the day and confessing at night; we will never be able to cast off the bonds of sin, let alone have our sins cleansed and enter the kingdom of heaven. Just as the Lord Jesus said, “Jesus answered them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Whoever commits sin is the servant of sin. And the servant stays not in the house for ever: but the son stays ever” (John 8:34–35).
