Thanks for stopping by.  I'm pastor of First Baptist Church in Dupo, IL.  You can visit the church website for information on the church: www.fbcdupo.org.  Here I hope to share some inspiration and perhaps a few tales from the winding road…this journey called life, where God can be seen in the moments of our day if we are looking for Him.  ~Roger~

Thought for the Day

Even when we don't sense God's presence, His loving care is all around us.

Words to live by...

Those who seek Him will praise the Lord.  Let your heart live forever!
Psalm 22:26

Hidden Sin

Chuck had slowed to a stop when his car was hit from behind and was pushed into the vehicle ahead of him.  A sickening, crunching sound indicated that additional vehicles had collided behind them. 

As Chuck sat quietly for a moment, he observed that the vehicle diectly behind him was pulling out into traffic.  Obviously hoping to avoid an encounter with police, the escaping driver neglected to notice he had left something behind.  When the police arrived an officer picked up the hit-and-run driver's license plate from the ground and said to Chuck, "Someone will be waiting for him when he arrives home.  He won't get away with this." 

Scripture tells us: "Be sure your sin will find your out" (Numbers 32:23).  This man who fled the scene of the accident was about to find out this truth.  We may sometimes be able to hide our sin fro people around us, but nothing is ever hidden from God's sight.  He sees each of our failures, thoughts, and motivations. 

As believers we are given a wonderful promise: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).  So don't let unconfessed, so-called "hidden" sins come between you and God.
