We read in the news about the secret dealings that leaders, in all walks of life, corporate, private, and yes even political are involved in. Example: Ever ask yourself how a politician, a servant of the people in the U.S for example, gets elected with a entry level salary and benefits, yet after a few years becomes a millionaire with luxury homes, planes, cars, and all the trappings of wealth? Could it be secret dealings in a secret side of life? How about a man, upstanding in the community, maybe even a pastor, who is arrested for child prostitution? Even though the news details situations like this often, we still believe that our secret life is our secret. Most get away with it, until that is, judgement day. On that day the consequences of eternal damnation will prove the secrets are not worth it.
So friends, keep short accounts with God. Repent and keep your conscience clear before Him. The secrets will come out so live right. He is quick to forgive. And if you fail, as we all do, don’t try and keep the secret from God because you can’t.
The Bible says, “You have sinned against the Lord; and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23)”
“And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.” (Romans 2:16)
