Recession exposes secret sin

John Piper:

He intends for this recession to expose secret sin, and so, bring us to repentance and cleansing.

Biblical exaple:

Job. The first verse of the book of Job says, „In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blamelessand upright; he feared God and shunned evil.” So, he was a good man. In the last chapter, Job 42 verse 6, it says, Job says, „Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.”

So, what does that mean? He was a blameless man. Check him out Satan! Job, „I’m a wicked man. (I) cover myself with dust and ashes and repent before the living God.” What does that mean? It means this: The most pure, blameless, holy saint on the planet has a sediment of sin lying quietly at the bottom of his beaker. While we look at this clean, clear water called holiness, but you bump him, just bump him and it gets cloudy. And Job got bumped big time and out of his mouth came some things he never should have said, cause they were there.

And they’re in you! And you know what brings them out? Recession! That’s what brings them out. That’s the way it works. That’s the way recessions work. That’s what they’re for.
