The unbeliever loves their sin and they don’t want to part from it, but the believer can never find rest about sin. If you can live in sin and practice sin and remain silent about sin, that’s the worst news you’ve ever had, it shows your lost and without Christ.
The Christian doesn’t get away with sin, they don’t get by with sin. You are going to end up acknowledging it, confessing it and not remaining silent about it. So confess it at the beginning and don’t waste time. Why be miserable for awhile? Confess it, be honest, get in the light. You know what will happen? Psalm 32:5 says, forgiveness!
