Worship renewal without confession leaves the church empty and sick. We are right to desire renewal, but it comes with a cost: owning up to our sinfulness and waving the white flag of surrender. With confession restored to its rightful place, the church is open to the kind of renewal only God can do, and that is renewal indeed.
