Ashamed? For What?
Good morning My Ekklesia Family
Paul says this in Romans 1:16-17
For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” I remember reading somewhere about when people are asked to give their story about their lives, most of the people are quick to only talk about the good things happening. This comes from a false sense of pride which we are quick to toss up to protect us from embarrassment.
YES, I know if we would really look at ourselves there will be some things we will be proud of But at the same time GOD will remove the false pride and allow you to remember, having your mind to cross dusty roads, paths of things that we've messed up... the Failures and the disappointments... the bad choices we made... cussing and fussing before we made time to speak sensibly and began to look for solutions. (Do me a favor...Scream this out loud) THANK GOD FOR JESUS! 😊 (wow! It felt great didn't it? 😉😊 let's do it again...)THANK GOD FOR JESUS! We can do this with confidence because we know by Faith, He works things out for us. There is nothing to be ashamed of about our past disappointments and hurts. What we have gone through brought us here! And by the same Faith, we HE IS NOT THROUGH WORKING ON US! Hold your head up high from now on and don't be ashamed of nothing.
Have an amazing day. I l❤ve you more than you know
May Peace and Blessings Overflow in your Life
