CONFIDENTLY DECLARE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST!
For 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 (Luke 9:26).
As a Christian, you must confidently declare your relationship with Jesus Christ. You must endeavor to let everyone know that you are now a new person in Christ Jesus. Jesus Christ said that whoever that is ashamed of Me and My words, He will also be ashamed of him when He shall come in His own glory, in the presence of His Father and His holy angels. Apostle Paul confidently declared his relationship with Jesus Christ when He stated thus, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16). Every Christian is expected to declare and do likewise. A Christian’s relationship with Jesus Christ is expected to be publicly declared.
Moreover, we must learn to confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Master of our lives daily. As we confess Him daily, we are confidently declaring our relationship with Him. That is why Jesus Christ says in Luke 9:23, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Of course, a Christian needs to deny himself of pride, prestige, worldly achievements and desires; pick up his cross and follow Jesus Christ daily. This is the cost of being a disciple of Jesus Christ. It is a costly sacrifice every Christian is expected to make in his earthly pilgrimage.
Furthermore, the Bible tells us that Jesus Christ is the Author and Finisher of our faith. Through Him, our relationship with God was fully restored; and we got a new identity. This is the more reason why a Christian should confidently declare his relationship with Jesus Christ. No wonder the Bible says in Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2). Jesus Christ is the Author and Finisher our faith; therefore, every Christian is expected to publicly identify himself with Him daily.
Daily Tip: A Christian should not be ashamed to confidently declare his relationship with Jesus Christ in this wicked and hopeless generation. Shalom!
Golden Text: Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God (Luke 12:8).
