Whoever heard of someone lighting a lamp and then covering it up to keep it from shining? No, lamps are mounted in the open where they can be seen-Luke 8:16 TLBWhat type of Christian are you? Do people know that you’re a Christian and have made Jesus your personal Lord and savior? Or are they unaware of your beliefs? Before you answer, let's take a deeper look at what the expression low-profile actually means. According to Answers.com, the term low-profile is defined as behavior carried out with deliberate restraint or modesty so as not to attract attention. In other words, someone who is undercover or keeping things on the down low in the way they conduct their lives. So again, I say what type of Christian are you.Being a Christian, believer or follower of Christ doesn’t mean that you shout out that you’re a child of the most high to everyone you meet. It does however, mean that your life and the way that you live it should be evident that Christ is your Lord and Savior. Matthew 5:14 & 16 tells us that we are light for the world and that our light should bring (through our deeds and morals, of course) glory and honor to our Father in heaven. Since we're charged with this task, let’s never allow the term low-profile type of Christian to be affiliated with our names.
