Ah, Mark 4:22. One of the things Jesus said concerning light…although light isn’t really the subject of this verse. For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.
So, basically, this verse means that whatever you’ve done, will be brought to light. It will never be a secret forever.
Now, here’s the thing. It goes a little deeper than that.
God is the ultimate judge. When we face the gates of heaven, God begins such a judgement process. He looks at ALL you’ve done. He will mention things to you or…bring things to light. So, at some point, you will have to face your past.
On earth, you may die and “escape” but, even then, it’s very possible that your secrets will come out. Nothing can escape God’s light of truth and justice.
I get it. There are some things that we just want to take to the grave. I know I got some stuff. But, this verse would suggest that you are wasting your time and effort. For all we do to cover it up, it will be revealed anyway.
That’s what this verse means to me. What about you?
