"Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14
You may want to run and grow in your relationship with Christ, people may even criticize you for not “growing” in the way you should, but if you are in a season of just madly being in love with Him, or a season of sitting and resting at His feet; than so be it, Jesus is with you, that is all that matters.
