Confession of Sin

“Confession of sin is as necessary under the New Covenant as under the Old, but with an entirely different end in view; It is not as a part of the compensation for the guilt of it nor as a means of pacifying the conscience so that we may still go on in sin; but to fill us with self-abasement, to induce greater watchfulness against sin, to glorify God for the mercy available, and to obtain a sense of His pardon in our own souls”.
A.W.Pink, from his Hebrews Commentary, p.535
