Matthew 10:32 Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.
33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.
Confession or denial of Jesus before men? Of coarse, I want to confess Jesus before men, but, I find my fleshes carnal desire is not to create waves. When I deny Him, I deny His greatness and power. He is still awesome regardless of my denial, but I lose out on the blessing. Peter denied he ever knew Jesus. Jesus didnt give up on Peter. We all battle fears, but thanks be to God, we have His Spirit, by whom empowers us in boldness to confess Him. We confess Him with our mouths, hearts, & lives. How we walk speaks volumes. We cant be neutral and say, "I cant confess nor deny" when it comes to Jesus.
