A panda walks into a café.
He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and
proceeds to fire it at the other patrons.
"Why?" asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst
the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit.
The panda produces a wildlife manual and tosses it
over his shoulder.
"Well, I'm a panda," he says, at the door. "Look it up."
The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual
and, sure enough, finds an explanation.
"Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal,
native to China. Eats shoots and leaves."
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men,
him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also
deny before my Father which is in heaven.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Allow your mind to focus on the words "shall confess."
Those two words are translated from the Greek verb homologeo.
The verb is in the arorist tense -- a perfection tense, meaning:
then, now and always.
Jesus was saying when a person makes a genuine confession
of Christ, it becomes a profession!
It is impossible to genuinely surrender to Christ as Lord
without continually confessing the same!
Life with Christ is not meant to be lived privately!
God's Holy Spirit CONTINUES to bring out confession of Christ as
Lord through our life style.
It becomes a PROFESSION -- a life's WORK!
One other thought: Whoever is not confessing Christ as
Lord is denying Christ as Lord.
Christian: Has your confession of faith in Jesus
become a profession - a way of life with you?
When that happens, others around you will begin to
WANT to know Jesus as Lord and Savior!
