Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna. Matthew 10:26-28
God knows everything about us and what we have done throughout our life. He knows every secret that we try to hide from ourselves, from others and from Him. We live in a world that everything about us is known. Records are kept, sometimes without our own knowledge about our lives. Nothing about our life is hidden. Yet when we sin, we do everything possible to cover up our wrong. Little do we know, that it always comes to the light. No one goes through life without a sin coming to the surface.
What is it like to come close to loosing your life, your soul. It's not a pleasant thing. Should we fear the one who would destroy what gives us life, you bet! I can sit here and actually look back and think about how one person could so easily attempt to take your soul from your life. I see with eyes the many times an attempt to change my morals was brought to the surface, and the many times I refused. The things that kill a soul. Be afraid of the one that drags your life to Gehenna. Because should you go over the edge, there is no coming back unless it is by the hand of God, and his reaching in to pull you out. Think about the desires that rule your life, follow the commandments, each and every one of them, you will not regret it.
And for me this one person was my test of faith, and where my heart belonged, to God. Please don't wait until you are tested to see where your loyalty is, because it might be one we fail and not pass. Be true to God always, in everything.
