Distorting Godís Signal

The farther I walked, the more unfamiliar the names became on my Smartphone. But it was useless to try and access them. The lock icon revealed they were password protected.

Wi-Fi. A synonym for WLAN or wireless local area network. Some say itís an acronym for wireless fidelity. Iím not as concerned about what it means as I am about what it allows me to doÖaccess the internet wirelessly with my laptop, Smartphone, and IPad. But if I meander too far from the source-or donít know the password, the signal becomes distorted or unavailable.

In Isaiahís day, the source was God, but sin had taken the people so far from him that access was denied. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore (Isaiah 59:2 NLT).

An unknown source said, ďSin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.Ē Iíve experienced this truth personally and watched it play out with family members and casual acquaintances.

Confession of sin is what initially connects me to God and re-connects me when I occasionally stray. Itís the wireless bond that keeps a strong signal between me and God and enhances our relationship.

Confession is what clears up the relationship between me and God when sin distorts it. It doesnít give God information heís not already aware of; rather confession acknowledges that Iím too far from the source.

Confession also reminds me sin is serious. Sin is more than a mistake, a slip-up, or a blunder. Itís an act of rebellion against a holy God who loves the sinner but not what their wallowing in.

Have you lost connection with the Source due to sin? Confession is the password that re-establishes service.

Prayer: Holy and Merciful Father, remind us our sins are against You and are serious. Prompt us to confess regularly and sincerely so that our connection with You will be clear, concise, and enjoyable. www.lovelinesfromgod.com
