“The fruit of the knowledge of truth is humility.”
– Bernard of Clairvaux, “The Steps of Humility and Pride.”
During this season of Lent, we invite you into a spiritual practice of confession and appropriation. Adapted from Bill Bright’s Have You Made The Wonderful Discovery Of The Spirit Filled Life?, this is an exercise in spiritual breathing. Perfect for this Lenten season, may you enter into deeper humility as you discover the truth about yourself. And in that place, you will find that you are loved by God more than you could ever hope or imagine!
Exhale = Confession (James 5:16)
1. Agree with God about your sin (be specific) and confess to a trusted friend, if willing
Inhale = Appropriation
Receive His Spirit anew (Eph 5:18)
Receive His promise of forgiveness and cleansing (1 John 1:9)
