I remember I once asked this question on ‘WhatsApp’: what should a child of God be shameful of apart from SIN? The people of the world consider a lot of things to be shameful; poverty, poor academic performance, joblessness, old fashioned car, etc. Why should one be ashamed of family background? The God who created the rich also created the poor, and they are all equal before Him. Truly, aside sin, I don’t know anything a child of God should be shameful of.
The most shameful picture is the picture of the unsaved man – the naked man. Revelations 3:18 reveals that we should cover our shameful nakedness with the purchased white cloth of righteousness. Sin is shameful, let us awake to righteousness through the faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:34).
What is going on in your life? Have you had a dream in which shame had wrapped you? A threat of disgrace from a co-worker? An inward fear of shame? Do not worry! As long as you put on the cloth of righteousness given by Christ Jesus’s suffering on the cross, it shall come to pass. Do not lose heart, put your trust in God, believe in Him, and you shall never be put to shame (1 Peter 2:6, Romans 10:11).
Henceforth, let not shame be a threat to you. May the Lord put all your adversaries to shame in Jesus’ name! And the Lord speak on your behalf that your adversaries will be silenced (Luke 13:17). I love you all Amen.
