Secret Sins

Often times we do things in the dark, that is, when no one else is looking and think it’s okay because who’s going to know. When we’re home or off by ourselves thinking we’re safe because no one sees us. But it’s these very words and actions that the Lord sees and warns us against.

“Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the Lord, and their works are in the dark; they say, ‘Who sees us?’ and, ‘Who knows us?’” (Isaiah 29:15)

But this is a path that leads to death and hell.

“‘Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.’ But he does not know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of hell.” (Proverbs 9:17-18)

Nothing is hidden from the Lord, not even a curse said under our breaths, or what we fantasize while looking at something in the privacy of our homes.

The Bible says, “God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” (Ecclesiastes 12:14)

In other words, those things we do in secret will not remain secret for long.

“Judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts.” (1 Corinthians 4:5)

“For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.” (Luke 12:2-3)

Those who think they can evade judgment, along with the guilt and shame by being secretive about it, will eventually find out something quite different.

But don’t despair, there is hope, and it comes through confession and repentance.

“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.” (Proverbs 28:13)
