Luke 9:26 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New Testament

That is, whosoever shall deny and disown me, either in my person, in my doctrine, or my members, for any fear or favor of man, he shall with shame be disowned by me, and rejected of me, at the great day.

There are two passions which cause men to disown Christ in the day of temptation; namely, fear and shame.

Many good men have been overcome by the former, as St. Peter and others; but we find not any good man in scripture guilty of the latter, namely, that denied Christ out of shame: this argues a rotten, unsound, and corrupt heart. If any man think it beneath his honor and quality to own the opposed truths, and despised members of Christ, Christ will think it beneath him to own such persons at the great day.

Learn hence, 1. That such as are ashamed of Christ's doctrine, or members, are in God's account ashamed of Christ himself.

2. That such as either for fear dare not, or for shame will not, own the doctrine and members of Christ now, shall certainly find Christ ashamed to own and confess them at the great day.
