[Don’t tell me that you’re a Christian if you don’t publicly brag on the risen Lord Jesus Christ. Scripture NEVER suggests that a child of God should have a private faith. That’s the sort of language of false Christians who don’t actually know Him.
In fact, God’s children are commanded to share with others the good news of salvation that we have in the risen Lord Jesus Christ. And we Christians are eager to do so, because we’re excited about what Jesus Christ has done for us. We’re excited about the forgiveness, spiritual life, fellowship, sanctification, and righteousness that we have in Him.
we love Him, because He first loved us].
18 “And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.
19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.“
“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
Throughout the Psalms, we are repeatedly instructed to openly praise the LORD. Here are a few examples:
2 “Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.“
“O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.”
“I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.”
32 “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.“
“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
“For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.”
