Following Jesus might be personal but it's never private. Even when Peter denies even knowing Jesus, he couldn't get away with it. Once you are associated with him, it's an identity that sticks. Anyone we meet should be able to tell right away from our words, actions, compassion and way of living that we belong to him. They shouldn't have to guess!
Jesus would sternly warn his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah at this stage of his ministry. Well, now the secret is out and we have no such restrictions.
The question is whether people will be able to discover Jesus, see God, through the way we live our lives.
