25 Jun Matthew 10:32-33

32 “Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.

After encouraging His followers relative to the care and protection He provides even in the midst of persecution (verses 26-31), what does Jesus tell His followers in verses 32-33? Have you confessed Jesus before men and secured His promise to confess you before His Father? Are you encouraging others to make this “good confession” as well?
