Nothing is Hidden from God – (Luke 12:2-3)

Bible Verse
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.

Reading Notes
God’s ultimate purpose is not to hide the truth; but to make it known to all. Jesus who was fully God and fully human made known to us the truth of God’s grace and His plan of redemption. God makes His truth known to us today by the reading of His word. The Bible was written by human authors through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit giving us God’s revealed truth. By studying God’s word we can grow in our faith and understanding of God’s plan of redemption and purpose for mankind. God’s purpose for our lives is not hidden from us, it’s evident in God’s word the Bible and requires our following of the Lord. Luke is pleading with us to understand that all things will be revealed when we meet Christ. For now we must not forget Paul’s words to the Corinthian church, “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” God’s plan of redemption for humanity is clearly revealed to us in the pages of scripture. The Bible is God’s revelation to us regarding His plan of redemption and His interactions with humanity.

God has given us everything we need to live an abundant life and to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus, in His word, the Bible. For those who reject Christ and refuse to accept God’s word, face entering into eternity already condemned; because they did not believe in the name of the very Son of God and accept the free gift of salvation that was offered. The Bible tells us, “every knee will bow and every tongue confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord.” Our choice is we can do so as children of God and joint-heirs with Christ in the kingdom of God or we can do so as those condemned facing the judgment of God for every sin committed in thought and deed. We must never forget there is nothing kept secret. All of our thoughts and actions are laid bare before the Creator of the universe. God looks not only at our actions, but the desires, thoughts and motivations behind those actions. Moreover, God is not a man, nor is He like men. God is not going to debate us, God is not going to listen to why we feel we were justified in our actions. It’s guaranteed we will give an account for all our thoughts and all of our actions if we rely on our own works and we do not accept Jesus. Or they will be forgiven and separated from us as far as the east is from the west, if we place our trust and our faith in the very Creator of the universe, who is Christ Jesus our Lord.
