It Is "Snow" Secret What God Can Do

Some things are good secrets. Party plans, for example, and what's inside that gift bag. Surprise visits, personal information and a friend's words spoken in confidence are wonderful secrets.

There are also bad secrets. Pain, regret and holding on to a grudge are all examples of secrets that shouldn't be kept. These are the secrets that slowly eat away at you until all that's left is bitterness.

Jesus Christ told the people gathered one day that they had something inside them that they couldn't keep secret. It needed to come spilling out like a light in the darkness.

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or put it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither is any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Luke 8:16-17

It is no secret what God can do, and the truth of the true and living God was now in the hearts of Jesus' followers. The last thing they were to do, He explained, was keep that knowledge hidden away inside them. It wasn't meant for keeping to themselves, but shared with everyone they knew. Keeping the gospel from a lost and dying world was unthinkable to Christ, and this was a practical explanation that they couldn't miss.

So, here's an important question: are you good at keeping secrets or not? Can you hold out under penalty of tickles or do you let things slip at the first possible moment?

When it comes to the Word of God, I hope you refuse to keep secrets. You may be the only Bible someone sees today, and that would be a wonderful opportunity wasted. So let it all out! Don't let the miracles God can do in a heart and life be a secret.

Don't keep this one to yourself!
