John 12:42 NLT Many people did believe in Him, however, including some of the Jewish leaders. But they wouldn’t admit it for fear that the Pharisees would expel them from the synagogue. 43 For they loved human praise more than the praise of God.

There are some closet Christians out there. They secretly believe in God and the finished works of Jesus, but they don’t want to be too public with it because they fear rejection from their barely saved (if saved at all) peers.

Who’s more important? The opinion of our peers or a God, Who sent a Savior in Jesus? The answer is easy: GOD.

Let’s not hide God but value the opinion of our peers to maintain a reputation that’s worthless in the end. Let God be magnified and glorified above anything else.
