Daily Readings — Ashley Madison and God!

Day 2171: Saw Christmas items in a store yesterday – makes sense, after all it is only 100+ days away . . .

Scripture: Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes, and He is the one to Whom we are accountable. Hebrews 4:13  

Thoughts/questions: Headlines – pastor commits suicide after being exposed on the Ashley Madison ‘find a secret adulterous partner’ site. Man’s eyes were able to view those who visited this site with varying implications on those who had been on it.

However, today’s verse reminds us that God didn’t have to wait for a hacker to reveal the names. We are all naked and exposed before His eyes, so whatever we try to do ‘in secret’ is not kept secret from Whom we are accountable.

We all sin, yet to intentionally and purposefully hide our sin from others only provides a certain amount of ‘hiding’. And that hiding is only from those who would form an opinion of us, not make us accountable.

There are NO secret sins. Let’s not fool ourselves. Confess your secret sins to Him, but not because He doesn’t know, but because our confession will make us white as snow! Then STOP! It might not be easy, but stop.

Suggested prayer: Lord God, I confess my sin of _________________. Help me to turn away from that sin and be free . . .
