Our Secret Sins

God is privy to your most secret sins!  His eye is as much upon secret sins, as it is upon open sins. God has an eye upon our inmost evils. He sees all that is done in the dark.
As we are never out of the reach of God's hand, so we are never from under the view of God's eye. Oh! what dreadful atheism is bound up in that man's heart, who is more afraid of the eye of his father, his neighbor, his child, than he is of the eye and presence of the eternal God!
Those who wallow in secret sins, act as if there were no God to behold them, nor conscience to accuse them, nor judgment-day to arraign them, nor justice to condemn them, nor Hell to torment them!
All men's secret sins are printed in Heaven, and God will at last read them aloud in the ears of all the world! Though they may escape the eyes of men--yet they shall never escape the judgment of God!
[Thomas Brooks]
