Prov. 24:12

Prov. 24:12  Don’t try to avoid responsibility by saying you didn’t know about it.  For God knows all hearts, and he sees you.  He keeps watch over your soul, and he knows you knew!  And he will judge all people according to what they have done.

Ignorance is no excuse.  We cannot avoid being held responsible for obeying God because we may not know all there is to know.  God holds us responsible for how we live by what we know.  He knows the heart and why we do what we do.  No one escapes His notice.

There is nothing in your heart that God does not know about.  Nothing.  You may not be open and honest with others about you, but you cannot hide from God.  He knows not only what is in you, He knows how and why it got there.  If there is something there for Him to see, it is because you have not confessed it and repented of it.  He has not forgiven you and will hold you accountable for it.

You cannot fool God.  He knows what you know.  He knows when you disobey His revealed truth to you.  He will not let you get away with it.  He judges us for what we have done. 

How about it?  Do you have unconfessed sin in your heart?  He knows about it.  It is not okay with God and He will hold you responsible for your sins.  You have two choices to make.  You can confess your sins to Him today, or you can let God deal with you on Judgment Day. Would you rather let Him deal with you now while you can still live in Him, or do you want to wait until you no longer have a chance to repent? 

You cannot take a neutral stand.  By not repenting of your sins today, you are rejecting the Lord.  And, all who reject the Lord face an eternity in hell.  Are you prepared to face the possibility that you could die today with unconfessed sin in your heart?
