32“凡在人面前承认我的,我在我天父面前也要承认他;
32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
32 Verse 32. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men]

That is, whosoever shall acknowledge me to be the Messiah, and

have his heart and life regulated by my spirit and doctrine. It

is not merely sufficient to have the heart right before God; there

must be a firm, manly, and public profession of Christ before men.

"I am no hypocrite," says one; neither should you be. "I will

keep my religion to myself" i.e. you will not confess Christ

before men; then he will renounce you before God.



We confess or own Christ when we own his doctrine, his

ministers, his servants, and when no fear hinders us from

supporting and assisting them in times of necessity.
