I have been trying to delete this blog. It is not possible! The confirmation e-mail just doesn’t show up.
I guess the same is true for life. What’s done is done. It can be forgiven, but never undone. What’s said is said, you can never swallow back the words you spewed out.
Jesus wants to protect you from doing stupid things. “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees,” he said. Yeast is something that is small and inserted into a dough, but soon it takes over and changes the entire thing.
He also expanded on this subject and said: “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.”* So hypocrisy is something that starts out small, but soon leads you into demise.
I think the small beginning of hypocrisy is when you start thinking that everyone else is perfect, and you never tell anyone about that little mistake you did. They will probably think you’re a jerk, and it’s best to hide it. In that darkness, condemnation and shame takes a hold, and you’re going down.
If you come to the light, there is no condemnation. Jesus has really taken away all your sins, and his grace empowers you to live a righteous life. Just don’t hide away stuff you’re ashamed of and let it grow in the dark. If you feel what you did is to bad to tell anyone, that is the exact time you have to tell it.
