Sins and Good Works

Sins and Good Works



Some people’s sins are obvious, going before them to judgment, but the sins of others surface later.  Likewise, good works are obvious, and those that are not obvious cannot remain hidden.--------1Timothy 5:24-25


This passage of Scripture tells us that SINS and GOOD WORKS have the same outcomes in common.  The SINS of mankind are divided into two categories:  THE OBVIOUS and THE HIDDEN.  However those sins that are HIDDEN NOW will someday come to light, and WILL BE JUDGED at the JUDGMENT SEAT of CHRIST.  So in essence they are not put UNDERCOVER forever, but will be brought to LIGHT.  Whatever SIN done in DARKNESS WILL be brought out into the LIGHT for ALL to see.  Those who commit SINS whether OPENLY or HIDDEN WILL BE judged and put under CONDEMNATION.


Likewise with GOOD WORKS some are OBVIOUS and seen or experienced by others.  Some are NOT OBVIOUS and are NOT SEEN, but may be experienced by others.  Those that are done anonymously WILL NOT be HIDDEN forever.  They too will be brought to LIGHT, and those that do the GOOD WORKS, whether OPEN or HIDDEN WILL BE judged and REWARDED for those works done THROUGH the HOLY SPIRIT.


We ALL SIN and FALL SHORT of the glory of God, the difference is the Child of God is FORGIVEN of PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE SINS, they are COVERED by the PRECIOUS SHED BLOOD of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. However this does NOT give us, as Children of God, a license to SIN.  A TRUE Child of God will NOT have the DESIRE, in our hearts, to SIN against God, but since we are in the flesh, we STUMBLE and FALL, and when we do, we come under CONVICTION and are led by the Holy Spirit to REPENT of the SINS that we commit. 


But those who have NEVER TRULY given their HEART and LIFE to Christ, have a DESIRE to SIN against God and are under CONDEMNATION until they come under CONVICTION and REPENT of their SINS, both OBVIOUS and HIDDEN.  If you fall into this category, I am here to tell you that you have the opportunity to come out from under the CONDEMNATION that will bring judgment upon you and send you to an ETERNITY in that HORRIBLE, EXCRUCIATINGLY PAINFUL, place known as HELL.  Where you will NEVER get relief or EVER be set FREE.  All you need to do is:  CONFESS your sins to God and ask for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can.  He’s waiting!!!
