The secret life?

“Private Victory precedes Public Victory”  –Stephen Covey (author of 7 Habits)

In geometry when two lines parallel, they move correspondingly through the spreadsheet.  To expect full victory in Christ Jesus, who we are in public must parallel with who we are in private.  We each need to come to the point where we worry less about being seen by other men as righteous, and focus on striving to be righteous solely by God’s accord.  When we begin to have victory over our private lives, then who we are in private will reciprocally take care of who we are in public. 

And this is the message I proclaim—that day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.   -Romans 2:16 (NIV)

  1. Integrity is what you speak of. I know you must know of course since you wrote of it. Yet the way you write of it is quite inspiring. Good Job!
