Secret Life

“[A] day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life,” (Romans 2:16, NLT).

This is one of the facets of Paul’s Gospel. God isn’t just coming to inspect the result of our lives. He will have particular interest in that part of our lives no one else has ever seen.

With that said, how are you spending your secret life? If you are spending it poorly, there is grace for you to spend it differently. If you are spending it well, you are bringing joy to your Master.

The important thing is to know how you’re spending it. It’s always better to judge yourself now than to be judged and found wanting later.
