If many will not serve Christ in obscurity, we can never present Him to the world with clarity.
There are many in the annals of Christian history who are studied, celebrated, and extolled as role models to be followed. These exemplaries of Christianity are rightly known for their labors, sacrifices, and surrender to God’s will and ways. There is no shame in extolling the heroes and heroines of the faith.
This as long as Christians remain ever so aware and thankful for the untold, unnamed, and faceless Christians who paved the way for the mighty warriors of the faith to be used of God, at the appropriate time, in extraordinary ways.
