Dear Prof,

Two of the secretaries at the high school where I taught for many years
had a morning break together and it was their practice to share sweets
and coffee daily in the teachers' room. One day one would bring
something to share and the next day the other would bring something to

Frequently a male teacher would pass through while the ladies were
taking their morning break. He would see their goodies on the table and
say something like.

"Oh, doughnuts!"

Then he would help himself and keep right on going into the copy room.
This practice of his grated on their nerves since he was never offered
anything, never contributed, or even asked if he could help himself.

So one day after they had taken all of this they could, they took a
doughnut that was filled with custard, squeezed out the custard and
replaced it with mustard. That day the male teacher came in helped
himself to the only doughnut left on the plate and kept on walking. He
never said one word about the mustard, but he never did come in again
while the secretaries were taking their break.

It was a simple order, "Get dressed." When Mom said it, our five-year-old
grandson did what she asked. Moments later, he emerged from his room dressed
for the day. That's good. It wasn't until he was undressing that night that
Mom noticed a slight anomaly in how he had gotten dressed. He had two pairs
of underwear on! When Mom asked him about it, he answered with a bemused
look on his face: "Oh, I just put clean underwear on over the dirty
underwear." Not good.

Unfortunately, that is an all too common practice among God's children that
is. Instead of taking off some things in our life that are dirty, we keep
those and just put some clean stuff on over the dirty. It may make you feel
better about the dirty stuff, it may be covered up from most people, but the
dirty is still there. And you've got trouble with God.

There's a game all too many of us church folks play. It's described in
Isaiah 29:13-15. It's our word for today from the Word of God. "The Lord
says: 'These people come near to Me with their mouth and honor Me with their
lips, but their hearts are far from Me...Woe to those who go to great depths
to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their work in darkness and think,
'Who sees us? Who will know?'" Of course, God knows. He's not impressed with
all those Christian words we say and Christian meetings we go to and
Christian causes we support. He's interested in what's really going on in
your heart, in your real life.

There are a lot of nice people who have some very not-nice things going on
beneath the nice. Nice Christians who are poisoning their soul with
pornography, seemingly unaware that Jesus is standing there all the time.
Nice Christians who still have a serious problem with their temper, whose
rage is so hurtful, but known only to a few. There are nice Christians who
are hiding a pattern of abuse, or a heart full of bitterness, a life of
lying, a relationship that our culture calls an affair but God calls
adultery, a secret but sinful addiction, an agenda of revenge, sex outside
of God's fence of marriage; so many secrets that Christians cover with a
layer of clean.

Maybe the lie we want to believe is that the good we put on over the bad
somehow excuses or makes up for the bad. Not with a holy God. That's a lie
that may stave off the judgment of your own conscience but it will only
compound the judgment of God. And about it being a secret, Romans 2:16
describes the day "when God will judge men's secrets through Jesus Christ."
If you're covering up sin with spiritual stuff, you are sponsoring an unholy
coexistence that is an insult to a Savior who gave His life on the cross "so
that we might die to sins" (1 Peter 2:24) the Bible says, not hide our sins.

In Ephesians 4, God commands us to "put off your old self" and "to be made
new," to "put on the new self." He goes on to tell us to put off lying and
put on truth, put off trash talk and put on uplifting talk, put off anger
and bitterness and put on forgiveness and compassion, put off any kind of
sexual immorality and put on purity.

So you are at a crossroads. God brought us together today to tell you that
covering up your dirty with a layer of clean isn't going to cut it. It's
self-deception, it's living a lie, it's defying God, and it's building up
judgment. Don't you think it's time to come clean even if it hurts? It will
hurt a whole lot more not to come clean. You know you're sick of that battle
inside you. It's tearing you apart - the guilt, the fear of getting caught,
the shame. And you know God is sick of this charade. While God is speaking
to you, while your heart is open to the truth, run to the cross where
everything you're hiding was paid for with Jesus' blood. If you've never
been there to get the sin of your life forgiven, don't miss what He died
for. Today tell Him, "Jesus, I'm yours." Go to our website. You'll find some
more information there on how to be sure you belong to Him. It's and leave all that dirty stuff, once and for all, at the
foot of His old rugged cross.

Isaiah 40:30-31

New International Version:

Even youths grow tired and
weary, and young men stumble
and fall; but those who hope
in the Lord will renew their
strength. They will soar on
wings like eagles; they will
run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be

King James Version:

Even the youths shall faint
and be weary, and the young
men shall utterly fall: But
they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run, and
not be weary; and they shall
walk, and not faint.
