Did you ever do something wrong and no one ever found you out? Did you say to yourself, “I got away with it?” You didn’t! God’s judgment still awaits you and no cleverness or yours can get you through it. Your only hope is the blood of Christ. Today’s devotional explains. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Numbers 32:23 English Standard Version (ESV)
23 But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the Lord, and be sure your sin will find you out.
“The earth has often covered up the evidences of human guilt. Blood shed in battle has soaked into the soil, and men have forgotten the violence of tyrants and conquerors, but the earth shall disclose her blood. Sin, though it be sown in the earth, shall spring up like wheat, but to a terrible harvest. ‘Be sure your sin will find you out.’… If men should try to hide from God in hell itself, yet would he find them out; there is no possibility that any offender shall escape his all-seeing eye.”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1896), p.; 167]
