Who's watching?

Discipleship is not just about what you do when other disciples are around. We can talk about following Jesus and taking up our cross but in reality what we are when no one is watching is far more important than when we are meeting with other disciples. When I am alone do I continue to pursue holiness? When I am alone do I despise what is on television that clearly does not reflect the character of God. Job said that he had "made a covenant with my eyes" (Job 31:1 ESV) and you and I both need to know that God sees us when no one else is watching. God knows our hearts. We can talk about being a disciple. We can write blogs on holiness and having a passion for God and yet we can be living in outright sin. We can talk about Jesus and yet our hearts be full of pornography. We can speak of Christ and yet our minds be full of bitterness, unforgiveness, adultery, racism, selfishness, and all sorts of other detestable acts (Mark 7:14-22).
