Not Ashamed of Christ

A miner who was lately converted, and works in the pit among a lot of godless youths, took down his Bible with him to the pit the day after his conversion. He was met with a volley of abuse by the ungodly young men as they gathered in a group to play cards, and invited him to take a "hand" as he had done before.
"I've changed my master," said the young miner, "and if you are not ashamed to own your master, neither am I to own mine.”
So, he sat down a little way off from the group to read his Bible by the light of his pet lamp. When they saw that he was determined to "stick to his colors" they let him alone, and in a short time a number of them gathered around Davie to hear him read the Word aloud, and God blessed it to the conversion of several of them.
Never be ashamed of Christ. The servants of the devil are not ashamed to own their master. Why should those who are the servants of Christ?
"Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven.
"But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven." Matt. 10:32, 33.
