“There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed or hidden that will not be made known.” Luke 12:2
There is a small pleasure of not getting into trouble when I should. I feel it when I perform the California rolling stop when driving. But the Sheriff behind me is looking for someone else, so they do not pull me over. While that may be a sign of grace, true sin will catch up to us.
Many years ago, when I was in college, living at home, my parents were renovating the backyard. My friend and I were at my home studying for a class. Except, we were distracted by the attractive construction workers. (Hey! We were young and single!) They would have to walk past the kitchen bay window where my friend and I were “studying” next to, to get tools and supplies from the truck.
As they would walk, by we would smile big and do funny dances at them. We did this because the house had tinted windows. Well, we were so wrong about that! The next day, I was outside and walked past that same window and could see inside, when the lights were on in the kitchen. And the lights were on in the kitchen that day were giving the construction workers googly eyes. From that day forward, I never looked at them and tried to avoid them at all costs.
I remember thinking, I thought I could get away with acting like that. If I knew the construction workers could see my friend and me, we never would have behaved that way. In life, we sin and think we had gotten away with something or hurting someone because they would never find out about it. However, Father God knows every sin. He knows every move we make. All of these sins will come to light, and we will be judged for it. There are no tinted windows between God and us. Let us repent for our sins, and the sins were are unaware of daily!
Lesson Learned: All sin will come to light. No sin is hidden.
“Dear Heavenly Father, convict me when I sin. Holy Spirit, show me when I sin and not realize it. Thank you for giving us grace and mercy. Give me guidance to always do the right thing. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!”
