He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid”

Genesis 3:10

The social media is off the chart with exposed issues of politicians and celebrities. Some of these people spent a lot of money covering up present and/or past sins. The outcry on these situations is a mixture of understanding and condemnation. Our tendency as human beings is to do everything we can to keep our sins hidden and undealt with; however, there can be grace and freedom in the exposure of sin.

When we attempt to hide our sins, we remain in darkness and isolated from God and the fellowship of other believers. Yet if we confess our faults to God and one another, we can find grace to help in our time of need. The exposure of our sins will most likely have consequences that we would like to avoid. However, God uses our consequences to drive us closer to Him and His word. He also uses our situations as an opportunity to witness and help others to avoid our same mistakes.

The reality is that we can never hide from God because He is everywhere and knows everything. As daughters of the Creator, we will be disciplined for our sinful actions. However, God doesn’t discipline us because He finds pleasure in it, He disciplines us because of His unconditional love for us. The Lord wants us to succeed in this life journey that He has given us. We can’t grow in our relationship with Him if we are attempting to avoid dealing with our sins.

The exposure of sins helps us to move forward and learn to overcome obstacles to our faith. While the discipline of our sins isn’t fun, we gain so much more as we are humbled and rebuilt in our firm conviction to live righteously in Christ. When our sins are exposed, we need to resist the temptation to run away from Jesus—instead we must run straight towards Him, fall on our faces, and receive His unfailing love, grace, and mercy.

In His Service,
