But Paul said, “I am not out of my mind, most excellent Festus, but I am speaking true and rational words. For the king knows about these things, and to him I speak boldly. For I am persuaded that none of these things has escaped his notice, for this has not been done in a corner. Acts 26:25-26 ESV
When Paul spoke before King Agrippa his position was simple: Christ is King of the entire world and His Gospel was news for the entire world. It was not to be hidden in a corner, it was to be public.
Being public with faith and the truth claims of the Christian Faith comes with a cost. But there is no choice. A private religion is not following Christ. We are called to be in this world, loving and serving it. Not least in that loving and serving is making Jesus known.
May God’s people always be out in the open, having compassionate boldness. For these things were not done in a corner!
