You Did It. You Hid It. You Will Never Be Rid of It.

As a seventeen-year-old, Andrea Griffith was in church every time the doors opened, served as a leader in her youth group, and . . . was pregnant. After ending the life of her unborn child through abortion, these words played over and over in her mind: You did it. You hid it. You will never be rid of it.

But in this nearly nine-minute video clip from True Woman ’12, you will hear how Christ rescued her from a lifestyle of immorality, bitterness, and sickness. Yes, she did it. Yes, she hid it. But Christ took Andrea’s place on that cross . . . and she is finally rid of it! 

If you have any secrets stuffed away in the closets of your mind, know that Proverbs 28:13 is just as true for you as it was for Andrea:

"Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy."

If you’ve been hiding sin—even sin from long ago—would you ask God for the courage to go to a trusted friend today and bring it into the light? On the other side of confession and repentance . . . God’s mercy waits.

Because of Christ, you can be rid of it.
