Show Notes:

Principles

1. As followers of Christ we will still continue to sin (miss the mark) so we are to continually repent and confess.

2. Justification is a one-time act but, there is continual repentance throughout our lives that maintains our intimacy with Christ.

3. As believers we need to continue to confess and repent as we “journey” throughout our lives.

4. Just because you go to church or do Christian activities doesn’t mean you’re saved.

Peter Principles 1:
Peter is learning about humble leadership from Jesus.

Peter Principles 2:
Once you’re at peace with me, you’re forever at peace with me.

Scriptures:

John 13:10
Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.”

John 13:11
For He knew the one who was betraying Him; for this reason He said, “Not all of you are clean.”

John 13:5
Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.

John 13:8
Peter said to Him, “Never shall You wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”

John 13:7
Jesus answered and said to him, “What I do you do not realize now, but you will understand hereafter.”

John 13:9-10
Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, then wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head.” Jesus said to him, “He who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.”

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

John 13:34
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

Summary:
We all need to be continually cleansed of our daily sins but only need to be justified once by Jesus.

Bonus Truth:
Repentance is necessary every time we sin, but getting rebaptized isn’t.
