~ Righteousness is Not a Private Matter ~
Everyone whose life and conversation is evil hates Christ and his Gospel because they clearly expose their evil deeds, convicts them of their sins and rebuke them for them.
But he that does what is right in according with the will of God does so openly that all may know and see that what was done was done through the power of God.
“Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.” ~ John 3:20-21
“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” ~ Matthew 5:16
