John 12:42-43 -- On Confessing Christ

"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."
John 12:42-43

This is a good reminder for us, because we too have the opportunity to confess or deny Christ in our lives.  We don't have to bludgeon people with our beliefs or be obnoxious to or dismissive of others as we pursue our religion, but we also shouldn't go out of our way to hide what we believe in and who we are.  Let's live our lives in such a way that we can tell people we are followers of Christ, and they will see that belief in our actions and the direction of our lives. Let's set an example, and build his kingdom.  Let's put him first, and never be ashamed to be known as Christians and follow our Lord and Savior.
