Some Confessions Do Not Go Far Enough

Judas realized what he had done. He brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, and said, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood” (Matthew 27:4).
Judas confessed his sin. He was on the right track, but he did not seek forgiveness from the One whom he had betrayed. Judas cut himself short and took his own life.
When we sin we should confess as he did, but we also have to repent, turn our lives around fully, and seek forgiveness from God.
The heartless response of the Jewish leaders was, “What is that to us? You see to it!” (Matthew 27:4).
However, God would not have done that if Judas had gone to Him.
What do you do when you sin?
