John 3:20,21 Everyone who does evil hates the light. They will not come to the light, because the light will show all the bad things they have done. But anyone who follows the true way comes to the light. Then the light will show that whatever they have done was done through God.

Listen: Bring Your Deeds Into the Light

Listen: Bring Your Deeds Into the Light

If I were able to interview you on a radio program and ask you to share with the audience the one thing in your life right at the moment that you’re most ashamed of, what would that be? And how open would you be to sharing it?

People have secrets, things that they really don’t want to share with anyone, knowing full well that they’re wrong; that they shouldn’t be happening; that one hundred percent aren’t God-honouring.

How do you get rid of those things? How do you get a life where there’s nothing, were it to come out, were it to be made public, that you’d be ashamed of?

John 3:20,21 Everyone who does evil hates the light. They will not come to the light, because the light will show all the bad things they have done. But anyone who follows the true way comes to the light. Then the light will show that whatever they have done was done through God.

So the answer, according to Jesus, is to bring all that you think and do out into the light. Now, that means weighing your thoughts and your actions and asking yourself, would I want this to be made public? And if the answer’s no, getting rid of it out of your life.

Because then you can indeed bring everything out into the light, and honestly, that’s where we’d all prefer to live, right?

Make no mistake. Nothing is hidden from God’s view. And seriously, on that day when we all stand before Him in judgement, our deeds will be made public.

Anyone who follows the true way comes to the light. Then the light will show that whatever they’ve done was done through God.

That’s His Word. Fresh … for you … today.
