If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. - 1 John 1:9 My youth group wrote down names of people that have hurt us on one piece of paper and we wrote down our sins on another paper. We put them in envelopes and hammered them to the cross to remind us that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. We were given forgiveness. No matter what, God loves you and will wash your sins away.
