A, B, and C express the royalty and dominion of Christ.  Confession means to speak the same thing, to agree with God, admit our need.  To hear the name of Jesus brings a physical, psychological response as we bow, acknowledge, and confess.  Confession is not seeking forgiveness but it is agreeing with God (Truth) about the person and finished work of Jesus on the Cross.  Its deepest meaning is to concede, to declare openly and freely.

About Yvonne Jones

I am at heart, a LIFEguard: “big” sister, mama, grandmother, aunt, friend, swimming coach, lifeguard trainer, and registered nurse. I am in the business of alleviating fear through education and lots of hand holding. As a swimming instructor, I have taught people of all ages to overcome fear of the water and I marvel as fear gives way to fearlessness, as panic turns to pure joy, as tears dissolve into giggles of glee, and pennies retrieved from the bottom of the abyss become trophies. As a nurse, I have been privileged to walk up to Heaven’s gate as patients and family are welcomed home, witnessed the miracle of birth, helped mend broken hearts, and cared for the elderly as they wait.

Scriptures number one admonition is “fear not.” Question is HOW??? The Word becomes our swimming instructor and can help us learn to “tread water til Jesus comes.” Something my students often thought I was going to make them do!

So welcome to my pool! Jump in the cool water. Let it refresh your soul and feel the unseen hands of the Master Lifeguard lift you up and out of the deep water. Who knows, you just might even walk on water!
