Nothing Hidden

24 The sins of some are obvious, reaching the place of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind them. 25 In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not obvious cannot remain hidden forever. 1 Timothy 5:24-25

Paul re-emphasized the idea that nothing is ever hidden in God’s sight: sin, actions, words, thoughts. It brings great comfort and concern. On the one hand, He sees everything. On the other, He sees everything!

So, many of you are out there trudging through your day, doing what you always do with your family and friends. You get snubbed by some of your friends for your beliefs or not doing things on Sundays. It seems the world is against you at every turn. The culture is quickly sliding down a greased pole into depravity and immorality. But you keep pressing on. Your deeds and words are seen and heard. You’re doing exactly waht you’re supposed to be doing. The Christin life is not easy, but it is doable with the help of the Holy Spirit each step of the way.

Recall that contemporary song we sing in our churches:

Every step I take in you, you are my way Jesus
Every breath I breathe in you.

So, allow me to encourage you to just keep doing what you’re doing. Day by day. Hour by hour. Don’t be discouraged or disheartened. Embrace the journey He has placed you on.
