C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

Someone Is Always Watching


On my way to survey the camp for our mission trip to the Navajo (Dine’) in July, I passed by this scene in New Mexico. It reminded me of the verse, ‘The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.’

Isn’t it interesting how true the scriptures are when it comes to the depravity of man, whereby mankind loves ‘darkness rather than light, because [our] deeds [are] evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.’

How often do we try to veil our sin in the shadows and the darkness, in the secret when we believe there is no one else around that may condemn us? Do we somehow believe this will keep us from judgment, or allow us to save our image by living a double life? Has not the scriptures declared, ‘A double minded man is unstable in all his ways;’ whereby we are called upon to ‘Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.’

Have you not seen family or friends, coworkers or church members do things you felt were unbiblical yet remained silent? Even to this day do they have no knowledge that one they know has witnessed their behavior? Shall you deceive yourself into believing that the same is not true of thy actions also? Hmmm…what of your spouse or children, or the children of others you hold company with?

Someone Is Always Watching. May we always be quick to repent and turn from our wicked ways, and dwell in the fellowship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in obedience.

tim, how true. sometimes we forget that we should try to live our lives in a way that no one would question our actions or words. something that we may consider innocent may not appear that way to others. your article made it very real that others, especially children, are watching us and need to see people they can believe in and want to emulate.thanks for your words of caution. we all need to heed.

Lol. Heaven has a close circuit CCTV numbering ten gazillion numbers so jebus can pry between the doors of our bedroom engaging in the most intimate of activities.

If this isn't voyeuristic, I wonder what is.

Did you notice the signboard "Adult Video" beside the Jebus signboard?

I wonder what Jebus is watching.......PORN!!!??? What? Jebus watching porn?

Lol Tim. For your sake, please take off this post. I am laughing as hard as I can already. This isn't doing your Christian cause any good.

Jesus is watching you Beast. Every time you choose to disobey what you know to be right, every time you reject the truth. He watches us all. There is nothing hid from His eyes.

You may choose to mock God, but it does not change the fact that when man thinks he is hiding his fornication and sin, it is still open before God.

You have the choice to dwell in your sin, or repent and receive forgiveness of it by trusting in Jesus Christ.

Beast,

You are right...the photo speaks for itself.

Christ sees every soul that walks into that Adult Video store.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
