If you are struggling with a hidden sin in your life, I encourage you to seek it out and destroy it before it destroys you. 1 John 1:9 tells us that if we confess our sins, God will forgive us and cleanse us. I know from experience that one of the hardest things to do is tell God out loud what you have done and ask for His forgiveness. Just saying what I had done made it sound so terrible that I never wanted to sin again. It might also help to share your struggle with a brother or sister in Christ. Sometimes it is enough to confess to God and ask Him to forgive, but other times we need some help to get through. Christians should help each other to overcome sin, but no one can help you if they don’t know you are struggling.
