Whoever acknowledges me before others …
“Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.
Blessed be the mighty Heavenly Father in Jesus’ precious and matchless name !
Beloved brethren, the subject verse from the Gospel according to Matthew is very significant for all of us. In fact, I would say it as very important to the whole humanity. Moreover, I believe that God gives ample chances to know about Him through His begotten Son, Lord Jesus Christ. For Jesus is the only way to the Holy Father and as the Bible says, he is the way, the truth and the Life. From the subject verse, we hear the very words of the Savior concerning those who does not acknowledge Him before others.
Professing our love and trust in the Lord is indeed very important to every believer of Christ. By this act we acknowledge his Lordship over us. Moreover, this is not an one time act in the secret. But it is meant to be professed in front of all and in all circumstances — either good, bad or ugly. By exalting our Lord, we bring glory to the Holy Father. As the following verse says, by our belief in Jesus we are made right with the Holy Father. And by open declaration of our faith in Jesus we receive the gift of salvation.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.Romans 10:10 NIV
Therefore brethren, we are to glorify our Lord before the men and the adversary who is ruling this world. And our Lord shall acknowledge us before the Heavenly Father and receive us to his holy kingdom.
All the glory to the Living God for the most precious gift that he gave in Jesus Christ. Amen.
