When I was a kid growing up there was a popular TV show on called “The Secret Agent Man!” I loved watching that show and I could imagine myself playing the part!
The Secret Agent man was to keep his identity a secret from the enemy so that he could find out what their evil plans were and destroy them. He was a brave man, willing to die for his country! Did you know there were Secret Agents in the Bible?
John 12:42-43, Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on Him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
This was unfortunate. They were like secret believers today who are cowards. They didn’t stand up and be counted for the Lord because they were afraid they’d be banded from church!
What causes you to shy away from letting people know you love the Lord? Are you a secret believer or do people know you’re a follower of Christ?
