Lance Armstrong made his famous confession in January in a televised interview with Oprah Winfrey. The world’s best-known cyclist admitted that he had cheated, lied about it and bullied other people over a period of several years. At that time, Armstrong said that he intended to personally apologize to many people that he had wronged. However, four months have passed since this promise was made, and many say that they are still waiting to be contacted by Armstrong.
“Sorry” seems to be one of the hardest words to say. It can be very difficult to tell God that we are sorry that we have sinned. Yet this is what he wants us to do.
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.”—1 John 1:8-10.
