Jesus wants us to confess Him before men. In Matthew
10:32-33 he says, "Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I
will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me
before men, him I will also deny before my Father who is in heaven."
If we deny Christ we are going to be lost. We must not be ashamed to

the Son of God." Here we see that we must believe with all our
heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and not be ashamed to make that
confession to others before we are baptized. Would you be willing to confess to others that you believe that
Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God?
