Practical advice for this important spiritual discipline
The discipline of confession points to how we need others in our lives for full healing. It holds such importance that we are advised to make it a "common practice" in James 5:16.
Healing results from confession because the dark areas of a person's life, where sin likes to remain concealed, are exposed to the light of Jesus Christ (1 John 1:5-7). This spiritual practice breaks sin's power, enabling people to respond to God's transforming grace and extend what they have received in Christ to others (Romans 8:5-11; Galatians 5:16-26).
