Living in this world where there is no so much place for the Divine Creator , we can show others we prefer to be part of His World, instead of being part of this world which indulges in the “pleasures of life”. In the regions where there are many living who call themselves”Christian” we can find lots of people who really do not know this sent one from God. What about you?
Are we sometimes like Peter and say we do not know Jesus?
This could simply mean missing an opportunity to speak out, or could be something far greater, such as an outright denial.
Peter was a marvellous disciple, but when he thought his life was on the line he denied knowing Jesus. How he then regretted his hasty words! There’s a verse (Luke 9:26, NKJV) which says in very plain language,
“Whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels.”
It’s a dreadful thought! When the Lord Jesus returns to the earth and judges us all, will he look at us and say,
“Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you”?
Much, much better that he should say,
“Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world”.
