If you have ever been denied or renounced, you know that it is not a good feeling. It may take days to get passed this fact. Some get over it quicker than others. On the other hand, refusing Jesus and the thought of being disowned before the angels of God adds a burden too heavy to carry. Truly you are worth more than sparrows and God knows how many hairs you have on your head. These are more than sufficient for acknowledgment of Him over rejection of Him.
