Don’t Live in Secret

“Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.”

– Matthew 10:32-33

When we talk about what it means to share our faith and to be everyday evangelists, I’m not talking about ramming religion down people’s throats. I’m not even talking about converting … although that may happen. I’m talking about teaching, guiding, mentoring, having conversations with others — at the very least, being public about the fact that you love the Lord. Jesus says, anyone who acknowledges me before men, I’ll acknowledge before my Father, but anybody who denies me before men I’ll deny before my Father. I don’t want to get up to heaven and find out that I lived a really good secret Christian life; when people wondered if I was a Christian, I was bashful or shied away from it. I think if you’re a hospitable, loving, joyful, peaceful person, you ought to be very open about your faith. We need more good people that are public about what God has done for them.


God, I want to share you with others. I don’t want to live in secret. I pray that I am bold and courageous for you.
