March 10-Can’t Hide Our Sin
Scripture Lesson: Proverbs 28:13
Today is the birthday of Steve Howe. Howe was the 1980 Rookie of the Year in the NL and helped the Dodgers defeat the Yankees in the 1981 World Series. A hard-throwing left hander, Howe’s career was plagues by alcohol and drug abuse. Over the course of his 17 year big league career, Howe was suspended 7 times. On April 27, 2006, Howe’s pickup truck rolled over in Conchella, CA and he was killed. The toxicology report indicated Howe had methamphetamine in his system.
The writer of Proverbs is crystal clear to us today. Those who conceal their sins will not prosper, but those who confess and renounce them find mercy. We think we can hide our sins. We may even think we have gotten away with them. There is someone, no matter how good we are at covering up our sins, He will always see our sins and know our sins. We can’t hide from God! It is useless to even try. The sin in our lives separates us from God. He is waiting for us to confess our sins and turn away from them. Remember we can’t hide our sins from God, let’s clean the sin out of our lives by confessing, repenting, and accepting His forgiveness!
1. Have we tried to hide our sins from God?
2. What happens when we try to hide our sins?
3. Take time now to clean out the sins.
God loves us so much, He is waiting for us to get rid of the sin in our lives and come back to Him. Why are we waiting?
