Tender words of terrible apprehension
“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17
Suggested Further Reading: Ezekiel 8:5-18
How often do you forget his presence too! In the midst of a crowd, you are conscious every one of you of the presence of man, but perhaps this very moment you are ignoring the fact that God is here.
In your shop on the morrow how carefully you will take heed that your conduct is circumspect if the eye of your fellow-man is observing you.
But before the presence of God, with the Eternal eye upon you, you can presume to practice the paltry tricks of trade or to do that which you would not have revealed to mortals for all the world; careful to shut the door, and draw the curtain, and hide yourselves in secret from men; strangely forgetting that when the curtain is drawn and the door is shut, God is there still.
No walls can shut him out; no darkness can conceal the deed from his eye; he is everywhere and sees us in all things.
Why, my hearers, we are all guilty in this respect in a measure; we forget the actual presence and the overlooking eye of God.
We talk as we dare not talk if we were thinking that he heard us. We act as we would not act if we were conscious that God was there.
We indulge in thoughts which we should cast out if we could but bear in perpetual remembrance the abiding presence of God, the Judge of the whole earth.
Forgetting God is so common a sin, that the believer himself needs to repent of it, and ask to have it forgiven, while the unbeliever may solemnly confess this to be his crying sin, a piece of guilt to which he dare not profess innocence.
The Christian should make a positive effort to do everything to the satisfaction of his unseen but seeing Lord (Ephesians 6:5-7). This was the principle that Joseph adopted (Genesis 39:9).
