Divine Transparency


What we do and say has eternal significance.

(Listen to my song “I Stand in the Light” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Luke 12:2

“There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.”


This passage reminds me a lot of the stories told by the majority of those who report having a “Near Death Experience.”

There are thousands and thousands of these cases in which people essentially died physically….but experienced life continuing in a spiritual state.

I have personally met several of these people.

They many times report being drawn into a Light of inexpressible Love where they experience total acceptance and peace.

Many also report experiencing a “life review” in the Presence of this Love.

And that’s when they re-live all the good…and not-so-good moments of their lives: all the joys and sorrows…as well as experiencing the feelings of others whom they helped…as well as hurt.

In that sense, Jesus reminds us in today’s scripture that we cannot hide what we do in this life from God.

But, we need not fear.

We are here to learn what it is to be loved and what it is to love.

We will review our lives in the Light of total forgiveness and compassion.

Can you imagine how deeply disappointing it will be to stand in the Light of the Love that created you…Who only wanted you to love others…and see how you failed?

I don’t know about you…but I know there are things to be reviewed that will not be pleasant. But there will also be things I will love to re-live.

And thank goodness that God is Love (1 John 4:8)!

For we will see how the Light is transforming every bit of it into a wondrous masterpiece of Love
