Forced Into the Light

English Audio Version

A recent Internet news article expressed concern over the fate of undercover agents across the world.

New technology has made it difficult to keep their identities secret. It’s not just cell phones and computer usage, either. Widespread closed-circuit television coverage has done nearly as much damage.

You can’t just learn a foreign language to become a secret agent in another part of the world. You must learn the mannerisms, also, whether to look down when you brush your hand through your hair, rub your nose with the side of your thumb or a fingertip, or if you smile before greeting someone or give them a neutral stare.

One little thing off … one little thing can give you away.

Psalm 37:6 says we will one day stand before all men, revealing just who we are … the good … the badeverything.

“He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.”

The musical group DC Talk recorded a song titled Jesus Freak. The lyrics say, “I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak. There ain't no disguising the truth.”

We can’t disguise who we are in Jesus. If we live for him, it will come into the light. If we only pretend to, that will be exposed, also.

Jesus is the standard. His example is what we strive to copy.

As DC Talk said in the final line of their song, “Jesus is the way.”

Excerpt of the Day

Jesus burns most brightly in us when he’s the only one who lives in our heart.
