Luke 10:16 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New Testament

Here our Saviour encourages his ministers to faithfulness in their office, by assuring them that he should reckon and esteem all the kindness shown to hem, as done unto himself: He that receiveth you, receiveth me; he that despiseth you, despiseth me.

Where note, that all the offices of love and respect, of kindness and charity, which we show to the ministers and members of Christ for his sake, Christ reckons it done unto himself.

Note farther, that the contempt of the message and messengers of the gospel runs much higher than men are aware of. They think it no great matter to slight or neglect the messengers of Christ; but verily that contempt flies in the face and authority of Christ himself, who gave them their commission: yea, in the very face of God the Father, who gave Christ his commission: and accordingly they are called God's mouth, Jer 15:19. Their message and their mission being both from him.

Nay, farther, this sin strikes at our own souls, and we are injurious to them as well as unto Christ; he that despiseth you, despiseth me; yet certainly no age was ever deeper drenched in the guilt of this sin than the present age is.
