“So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:32-33)
Jesus presented these words to comfort and encourage His disciples following His description of the life they would lead as His followers. The disciples would undergo persecution and be despised and hated by many because of their testimony to the truth of the gospel. Jesus let them know that, despite these consequences, the Lord would never abandon them. Therefore they must proclaim the Word of God with boldness. Almighty God knows all and sees all. He will punish those who persecute His followers. He will reward His followers for their faithfulness. If God knows and cares for the the tiny sparrow, He knows and cares for each of those who are His.
