4-8-14 On Name-Dropping

acknowledging

If you were to come across a famous star in town,

and he stopped to talk to you, this man of some renown,

would you not call all your friends with unabandoned joy?

Would you not tell ev’ryone by any means deploy?

Then why are you not shouting from all the roofs around

about your Savior Jesus, in whom your love abounds?

He is not matched in glory but by God and Holy Spirit;

all the stars on Earth and heaven stacked cannot come near it.

If He were standing next to you, would you not shout to all:

“Come see my blessed Savior!” Would you not text and call?

If you acknowledge Christ as Lord to all your closest friends,

confess His name to all you meet, e’en those you need amends,

then He will likewise talk of you to God upon His throne,

acknowledging you before the host of Heaven as renowned.

But if you should deny Jesus, He’ll do the same to you.

And if you never speak of Christ, this too He’ll also do.

Be not ashamed to share the gospel; don’t be shy or mute.

Proclaim His name to all the world and share this precious fruit.

If you want Jesus to confess your name to Father God

tell all you meet of Christ the King, tell all close and abroad.

“Therefore, everyone who will acknowledge Me before men,

I will also acknowledge him before My Father in heaven.

But whoever denies Me before men,

I will also deny him before My Father in heaven.”

(Matthew 10:32-33)
