My Daily Devotional

Hidden Sins

“But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men. He did not need man’s testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.”
John 2:24-25

I can remember my children as they were growing up, holding a pencil behind their backs, after they had written on the wall, trying to hide it from us. When we do something that we know we should not do, we try to hide it so that no one can see what we have done. We have a remarkable capacity to deny and cover up what we know is wrong, and try to hide it from others. Most people know when they sin, or do something that is not allowed, but often we do it anyway, and then try to cover it up. So often when we commit the initial sin, other sins follow. If we tell a lie, more than often we will tell another lie, to cover up the original lie, thus compounding sin. The thing to remember is that when we do sin, we know about it, and so does God. God knows every time you lie, and then tell another lie to cover it up, and you do too. When Jesus said in the scripture above “he knew what was in a man,” he knows what is in you, he knows the good, the bad and the ugly. You might be able to hide your sin, and not let others find out about it, but God knows all about it. You need to realize also that any sin left hidden will always haunt you in your own personal relationship with God. The answer to sin is to confess it, to acknowledge it, to declare to God the truth about yourself, and to turn your behavior over to God, who will forgive you. If you are living with hidden sin today, that is weighing you down, remember that it is not hidden from God, but you can be free from this sin, by simply confessing it to God, who will forgive you. One day God will judge you, and any sins that Jesus’ blood has not forgiven, you will be held accountable for.
