Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16

Unfortunately, in the house of God today we find many that only look after their affairs. They don’t take notice to care when a brother seems to be faltering.

When a member of the family stops coming for service or reduces his service, many don’t even notice. This ought not to be.

The house of God ought to be a place where as a part of the body is injured, everyone attends to his injuries to ensure his healing, because they have come to realize that when a member of the body of Christ is injured in his faith, the body of Christ is injured.

And these injuries if not treated, would fester and affect the whole body.

The MSG rendering of our opening texts says,

Make this your common practice: confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with 

When people go through spiritual challenges maybe in the form of sin, slip or some sort of backsliding, it is the will and desires of God for the ones that are strong to raise them up.

Romans 15:1

We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

The MSG rendering says,

Those of us who are strong and able in faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just to do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. 

Notice in our opening text that both the one that confessed and the one that was confessed to are to pray for each other so they could both be healed. As long as you are in the body of Christ, you’ve got to be concerned about your fellow members and pray for them. Their growth and safety benefit you. Be the kind of Christian that is neither judgmental or braggadocios.

Let someone find you trust worthy enough to confide in and ensure their healing.

I grow in the Lord daily as I learn to confide and confess to the right person. I don’t hide my faults and I am a succor to many.

Romans 15:1-3; 2 Corinthians 4:10
