So You Think You Can Fool God?


            I read of two service station attendants in a town in Michigan who refused to hand over the cash to an intoxicated robber.  When they didn’t, the robber threatened to call the police.  They still refused, so the robber called the police and was arrested.

            Then there was this pair of robbers in Michigan who entered a record store, waving their revolvers in the air.  One yelled, “Nobody moves!”  His partner moved, so…he shot him.  “I was a little nervous,” he was quoted as saying.

            Trying to hide secrets from God is even more foolish than the two illustrations above.  All things are open to Him (Hebrews 4:13).  Everything we do is open to God.  Do you think you are smart enough to pull the wool over God’s eyes?  If so, you are a fool.  Don’t believe for a single second that you will get away with sin.

            We can’t hide our actions from God.

            However, God loves us and wants to forgive us.  Though we can’t hide from God, we can confess our sins to Him and they will be erased by His forgiveness.  This of course applies to the erring Christians.  Christians must be faithful by walking in the light (I Jno 1:7).  If we’ve become Christians in the past, but stopped walking in the light, we can repent of ours sins and confess them and pray for God’s forgiveness, and then He will forgive.  I can’t erase your sins and you can’t erase my sins, but our God can.
