What's Your Secret?

What’s your secret?

For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. (Luke 12:2-3 KJV)

Whatever it is, it shouldn’t matter to a Christian once it’s been confessed, for then it has been cleansed.

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:5-10 KJV)

What should matter is coming to full knowledge that without that cleansing, we are separated from God. He promised life to the righteous:

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (Matthew 25:46 KJV)

But then we are told no one meets the criteria:

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (Romans 3:10 KJV); For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23 KJV)

Which takes us back to the question given to Peter by the jailor:

And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? (Acts 16:30 KJV)

Paul and Silas gave him the answer, taught him the story and followed through with baptism:

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. (Acts 16:31-33 KJV)

That’s when cleansing clears your secret. Do you think He does not know? He’s ready where you are.


  1. I used to sing that a lot in my younger days - my teens, in fact! I wanted to stop by & thank you for your comment on my blog. I didn't see it until today, as I'm not very active on my blog, and I just now looked (Hope this will post - the word verification is a little red x. Ah, now there's something there since I tried to post and failed.

  2. I think I left my first comment with the wrong post; it was meant to refer to the song "Come Unto Me."


Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)
