Sometimes we have to think before acting, because there are times when we do things on impulse or because others are forcing you to do such a thing, and you, because they forced you, made the mistake of doing it. In this case we will talk about Jesus and about salvation, which is the same.
When we deny Jesus our savior, who died on the cross of Calvary, we are saying that His sacrifice was worthless, that all this that the father did for the love of humanity was in vain. But it was not in vain, nor was it a waste, because, as many reject Him, others accept Him and abide.
At that time when Jesus was giving His sermons through the cities of those places He visited, there were the multitudes of people who attended. Many were there for a miracle, others for being saved, others who were going to murmur to the Master, and there were also spectators.
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
But the Father, to all who confess Him before men, He will also confess them before God who is in heaven, leaving us told that we should not reject Him, we should not reject our Savior, because if we do, He also will do it before His Father there in heaven.
But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
The truth is that denying Jesus has always existed, sometimes we meet people that when you talk to them about the Savior, and you ask them “do you want Jesus as your only and sufficient savior?” They say “no, not now because I have to think about it”. In order to accept Jesus we must not think about it, because we do not lose anything by saying “yes”, we will better earn the salvation of our lives, in Him we will be more than safe. The Bible tells us, that whoever denies Him here on earth, He will deny them before His Father who is in heaven.
Let’s look for Jesus, do not deny Him, let’s not say that we have to think about it, because the enemy every time you reject Jesus, he takes that moment and makes his own. Do not be fooled. God is at the door and knocks, if anyone hears His voice, do not harden your heart.
Do not deny Jesus
If we present to someone the person of Jesus, as the Son of God who took the form of a man, with a perfect humanity joined to his divinity, and that he came to the world to die for sinners, perhaps they will be astonished at our words because their mind or soul have not been prepared by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus tells us about that seed which needs to fall in a soil well digged, cleared of clay pebbles or weeds—things that, if mixed with a good ground, make the seed no longer able to germinate and bear abundant fruit.
“But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundred times, some sixty times, some thirty times”
In such a way the seed of the gospel needs to find a prepared “soil”, which means a soul made ready by the holy Spirit so that it can receive the Word of God for abundant life.
If a believer is tested, he may end up renouncing his Master and denying Jesus, as the apostle Peter did.
We are poor, weak people, and the Lord knows us and wants to be with us in spite of our condition.
“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
We need to be conscious of our responsibility as children of God, and pray to the Lord that he may sustain us in the face of attacks of the Devil, since Jesus is our warranty of eternal life. We must love him because he has loved us so much.
May the Lord God bless us and give us the necessary gifts to resist and be faithful people for Him.
