Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

By: Lantana Grace Church | November 12, 2019

I use my phone to broadcast our services ‘live’, and last Wednesday night, about an hour or so after the service, I discovered that my phone was still on ‘live recording.’ All of my private conversations were heard by whomever was still listening. As you would, I carefully thought back on all that was said; fearful of having said something I shouldn’t have. Then the thought occurred to me, ‘we should talk in private as if everyone were listening. We should talk to each other and talk about (or not talk about) each other as if everyone were listening. And we should act in private like everyone is watching. Someone is listening and watching; HE Who matters most. . . our Lord. “There is not a word in my tongue, but lo, O LORD, Thou knowest it altogether (Psalm139:4). “His eyes behold all things. He even knows our thoughts.

Fact is, if our hearts and minds were pure, merciful, and kind, then our private conversations and conduct would be without shame and reproach. The Lord said: “Every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give an account thereof in the day of judgment” (Matthew 12:36). So all of our words are being recorded.

May our conversation be holy and heavenly and may our conduct be like Christ, both publicly and privately.
