With this statement, "confess your sins to each other," there also comes a level of discernment. You aren't going to share every struggle with every person you meet. You confess your sins to others you trust. Being open and encouraging to each other is what Jesus meant for the community known as Christians.
When we walk together in faith with Jesus as our guide, we can do miraculous things. The community of believers, the church, is stronger than anyone is alone. That is why we confess to each other and pray for each other -- not to judge or condemn, but to lift each other up and encourage each other through the difficult trials we face everyday.
Help me to be vulnerable with those I trust so they may pray for me and lift me up so I may be healed and walk closer with you. Also, help me to lift others up without being judgmental or condemning, but only showing them Your love.
