"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

no secrets are hid

"Grant us, our father, your grace,
that, seeing ourselves
in the light of your holiness,
we may be cleansed of the pride
and vain glory which obscure your truth,
and knowing that from you
no secrets are hid,
we may perceive and confront
those deceits and disguises
by which we deceive
ourselves and our fellowmen.
So may we worship you
in spirit and in truth
and in your light, see light."
- Reinhold Niebuhr

“For the Word that God
speaks is alive and full of power
[making it active, operative,
energizing, and effective];
it is sharper than any two-edged sword,
penetrating to the dividing line of
the breath of life (soul)
and [the immortal] spirit,
and of joints and marrow
[of the deepest parts of our nature],
exposing and sifting and analyzing
and judging the very thoughts
and purposes of the heart.
And not a creature exists
that is concealed from His sight,
but all things are open and exposed…”
- Hebrews 4:12,13 AMP

“Keep deception and lies far from me…”
- Proverbs 30:8 NASB
