Letterman & The Cross & Being Exposed

Thanks to The Resurgence (Mark Driscoll’s blog) for this video.

I never thought about this point – but it is a great one.  I heard all of the news about the scandal & extortion Letterman was involved in, but I never though about how he must have felt to deal with all of this and then to deal with it publicly as he did.  First he had to deal with the shame of people finding out who were closest to him, his wife, son, family, co-workers.  Then it was going to spread to the entire nation.  I know he disclosed the situation in a very public and straight forward way, but in that I lost the fact that what was secret (and intended to be that) was now disclosed.

That’s something that everyone will do at some point – did you realize that?  We get to choose when that will be though.  We either come clean now before the LORD and allow Him to forgive us, cleanse us and remove our sin from us, or it is brought to light on judgment day.

Daniel 12:2 – Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt.

Romans 2:16 – “…according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.”

Luke 8:17 – For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.
