People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:32


Mt 10:32 Whosoever will confess me before men. To confess Christ does not mean to accept some particular creed, but to publicly acknowledge the Lord, and to live before men as his servant. It implies, (1) A confession of faith in him with the lips, such a confession as Peter made (Mt 16:16), and the eunuch (Ac 8:37). Paul describes this confession in Romans (Ro 10:10). (2) An acknowledgment of Christ by obedience and by giving the life to his service. Confession is a demonstration of faith, (1) by public acknowledgment, and (2) by an obedient life. A verbal acknowledgment of Christ is not enough if the life is a denial, for then it shows that the acknowledgment was a lie. The two must correspond. Him will I confess. Christ sitting on the throne of judgment promises to acknowledge as his own faithful brother every one who has thus acknowledged him before men.

    MATTHEW 10:19 BUT WHEN THEY DELIVER YOU UP TAKE NO THOUGHT HOW OR WHAT YOU SHALL SPEAK FOR IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU IN THAT SAME HOUR WHAT YOU SHALL SPEAK *** 10:20 FOR IT IS NOT YOU THAT SPEAK BUT THE SPIRIT OF YOUR FATHER WHICH SPEAKETH IN YOU

    The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and His ears are open to their prayers but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. He that committeth sin is of the devil. For the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil. We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not.
