Matthew 10:24 “A student is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25 It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub, how much more the members of his household!
26 “So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. 28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a pennyd? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 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 men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.

Are we willing to learn?

Are we willing to serve?

Are we willing to become like our teacher?

Are we willing to become like our master?

Don’t fear because the truth will be told.

Be bold to tell the story of Jesus and his love. 

Stand on the roof and tell the story that is told to you. 

Don’t fear those who can kill the body. 

Fear Him can kill both body and soul in hell. 

God knows about the sparrows and cares about them. 

God knows the number of hairs on your heads.  He cares for you.

Will we acknowledge Him before men?  Tell them about Him.  This is our mission. 

If we disown Him then He will disown us?  There will be a judgment.
