“Better to confess Christ a thousand times now and be despised by men, than be disowned by Christ before God on the day of judgement.”
— J.C. Ryle
We do not confess Him because we are afraid. What will people say about me? Will I be ostracized? Will I be rejected? Will people no longer respect me? Will I be forgotten?
Let me put your fears to rest: Yes. All of the above things will happen.
But we must confess Him nonetheless.
