Covering up Sin


Church Family,

My first day ever working I split my shorts. Yep, the whole world could see my undies. So, we took the only thing in the office that we could find to cover it up, a sweatshirt. I wrapped it around my waist and tied it. Did I mention it was during the summer, over 90 degrees, and I was in the 8th grade? On top of that my father told me the night before, don’t wear those shorts there’s a hole in them. I didn’t listen and then I had to cover it up.

Genesis 3:7-8 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths. 8And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

God told them not to sin, but they did not listen. Now they are trying to cover it up, but we can’t hide from God.

How are you trying to cover up your sin? To what lengths have you gone to make sure people don’t see your sin? Have you gone so far, that you are having to sin in order to cover up other sin?

There’s good news, God sought after Adam and Eve. They deserved to instantly die and be sent to Hell, but God’s grace pursued them. The God of grace is still pursuing sinners today. He is interested in removing your shame and forgiving your sin. Will you trust in Him today?
