“Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.

– Matthew 10:32-33 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Christianity is not a designer religion. God is serious about getting us on His agenda. One of the famous prayers that goes around today is “Jesus, come into my life and make me the person that you want me to be.” We find that the person that God wants us to be is someone who engages the world with His truth. One of the sins of this generation is to make religion a private thing. It never was meant to be private, and the discomfort of making our faith public proclaims God’s control in our lives. Do we shrink from this? Then who is in charge? You don’t have to buy a bullhorn or pass out tracts, but you do need to stand out as one who is ready to acknowledge Jesus to those around you. Jesus doesn’t hold back on this truth and neither should we.
