“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 10:32-33




Jesus said,

“Those who declare publicly that they belong to me,

I will do the same for them before my Father in heaven.

But those who reject me publicly, I will reject before my Father in heaven.”


– Matthew 10:32-33






The Lord calls each of us personally

asking us to declare ourselves for Him.


As Christians

we should live our lives in accordance with His teachings

and in manner that serves to bear witness to our faith.


Jesus assures us our eternal salvation if we publicly maintain our faith – whatever the consequences –

through our behaviour and attitude,

through our words and our deeds.


At the time of judgement,

Christ will welcome those who have given testimony of their faith.


But those whose viewpoint and lifestyle

will have indicated a rejection of Christ and His teachings,

the Lord will be similarly reject.

”At harvest time I will tell the reapers,

‘First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned,

but then gather the wheat into my barn.’” (Mat 13:30)


As a Christian,

I must not be ashamed

to imitate Jesus’ humility and example;

I must not be ashamed

of following the precepts of the Gospel for fear of displeasing the world or worldly people.

By doing so I will be failing to confess – by my life – the faith which I claim to hold.


I should never be ashamed of the Gospel;

I should never let myself be drawn away by the worldliness around me;

rather I should exercise a decisive and loving Christian influence on those around me,

always counting on the help of God’s grace.






Lord, fill me with Your Spirit,

that I may live to serve You and radiate Your love.
