A Heart For God: What You Are in Private You Are in Public

What You Are in Private You Are in Public

There's a false thinking that exists in our culture. It's the thinking that says what a person does in his private life has nothing to do with his public life. (It's interesting to note that many who ascribe to this thinking rationalize their own degeneracy and have even been caught in it.) The fact is what you do behind closed doors has everything to do with who you are out in the open. For instance, if you're looking at pornography in private, you will consider ever woman you see in public a partner to be had. Jesus talked about the private/public life (see verse below). To Him they are one and the same. What you are in private you are in public. Don't be fooled. Clean up. "'But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.'" (Luke 12:2-3)

So true. Living a dual life doesn't feel like a life in God. And He'll bring our impurties in character to the light for refinement. And we need it so our lives align with God's will.

So true. The private determines the public. People spend so much time dressing the public, when they should be nurturing the private.
