confession leads to joy not despair

“If you are truly trusting in Christ, you can’t confess a sin for which God has not provided forgiveness in Jesus.  Indeed, if you work at the discipline of confessing your sin, it should not lead to despair at all, but rather to rejoicing over the extent of God’s love to you in Christ.”

(Mark Dever and Michael Lawrence, from It Is Well: Expositions on Substitutionary Atonement)
