“I tell you,
if anyone openly declares himself for me in the presence of men,
the Son of Man will declare Himself for him in the presence of the angels.
But the man who disowns me in the presence of men
will be disowned in the presence of God’s angels.”
– Luke 12:8-9
Our attitude towards Jesus is very important.
On judgement day
He will declare to the angels in heaven who His true disciples are
– they are those who are willing to say that they follow Him.
Those who deny Jesus on earth, are refusing to accept His claim on their lives.
In heaven, Jesus will say that they do not belong to Him.
Then there are those who are ready and willing to do as He tells them.
These must, however, be very aware of temptation and beware of sin.
If we, out of fear of worldly suffering, deny our Lord
and are unfaithful to the demands of the faith,
we will be denied by Christ Himself on the Day of Judgment.
On the other hand, if we suffer in this life because of our faithfulness to Christ,
will receive the eternal reward of being recognised by Him
…and we will come to share His glory.
Lord, I want to be Your witness.
Take what’s wrong in me and make it right.
Make me a reflection of Your light.
Shine down on me, and let Your love shine through me.
Lord, I want to be Your witness!.
