“The secret of The Lord is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant.” Ps. 25:14 New American Standard
Everything in your life and in this world will break against the reality of Jesus Christ. And everything in your life that is in Christ will be made whole when He appears. His “secret” explanation of this reality is found in His life: I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT THROUGH ME. It is a sobering thought and image that every secret of our lives .. of your life .. will be revealed through Jesus. His nail-scarred hands show that He knows the destructive power of sin and the paralyzing poison of secrets. A Damascus-road disciple wrote that he learned the secret that he could “do all things through(in) Christ who gave him strength”. He discovered the secret of God’s unbreakable and irreversible promise for any life that trusts in Jesus Christ .. LORD and Savior. He longs to be that indefatigable secret of your life today. In the pressures of your life, you’ll find rest in Christ. In the struggles you face, you’ll find grace for today. In the loneliness, you’ll find Jesus right by your side. And the secret…? It only takes a moment ….
“…on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Jesus Christ.” Romans 2:16 New American Standard
