Matthew10:29-30 God loves everyone of you and He is in control ultimately.                Sometimes life happens and what we say (that we know God’s in control) and what we believe are different things.

Here’s the thing: God knows the number of hairs on your head, He knit you together in your mother’s womb. You are worth more than many sparrows to God, you are worth more than anything in the world to God. He loves us and is in complete control! Even though the earth is satan’s domain, God is still in control.

Acknowledging Jesus before men isn’t just standing up in your workplace or outside and saying Jesus is Great and is my Lord and Savior and love him with all my heart and then the next day we are out in a bar getting drunk or doing anything, anywhere, that we should not be doing. We’re doing more harm than good because no one wants Christianity then.

God needs and wants us to not just talk the talk, we Need to walk the walk. We need to proclaim God in everything we do. (Sometimes we do really well but we didn’t do it alone so we cannot boast except for what God has done.) God has laid out rules and guidelines for us that are very simple. They’re the keys to success. God wants us to take His word and follow it and be successful in Life.

We are all going to stand before God on judgement day and we will be judged on what we’ve done and what we’ve said. God is going to look at us and either see Jesus standing with us, surrounding us and covering us, or He’s going to see us for who we are.

If He sees Jesus he’s going to welcome us into heaven as his good and faithful servant, but if He just sees us as who we are, He’s going to see our sin and say depart from me you evil doer. If we deny Jesus and God before men in our words and actions, then He’s going to deny us before the Father. It’s up to us.

We were given a choice. Whether someone else thinks you’re saved or not doesn’t matter. You and God are the only ones who know. Stop lying to yourself and get real with God. If you are on the right path and headed on the straight and narrow path your job still isn’t done, you have to pray for those who don’t know.

Matthew 10: 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.
