Are You Ashamed?

Today's Scripture

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith." - Romans 1:16-17 (KJV).

Thoughts for Today

We're living in a time where the rest of the world wants to make us feel ashamed for having a faith in God. If you talk around to different people and mention Jesus, to these people then you will notice that a great deal of these people despise hearing the words, "Jesus Christ". They don't want to hear those words and when you say them or anything associated to them then those people are going to try and make you feel ashamed. If they can make us feel ashamed, if they can make us feel guilty then they're taking a big first step to getting rid of Christianity completely. That's Satan's plan, it's to do rid of Christianity, but that's not God's plan! God's plan will prevail. We have groups out there like the ACLU, who are fighting everyone who even so much as thinks the name of Christ and they're winning those court battles! This should not be. It is time for all the believers who are not ashamed of Christ and of the gospel to stand up and say, "We believe and we will fight for those beliefs!" When we do that and when we pray then they lose. We are losing right now because a lot of people are too ashamed to speak up. What is there to be ashamed of? Is it shameful that Christ, came with so much love to die for you? If we're ashamed of the gospel then we should be ashamed of ourselves.

We must also realize that the people who despise the name of Christ, are ashamed of themselves. They can't live with the fact that there is a God and that they aren't living right. They can't stand the fact that there is a God, who will judge them accordingly and instead of facing up to the truth they try to hide from it. Hiding never solved anything, but doing the right thing does. The right thing to do is to follow God and to not be ashamed of it. Why do you think people discriminate against Christianity so much, but when it comes to everything else those things are okay? It's because they know the truth and because they want to be in control. You can't have control when people are worshipping a God. We belong to Jesus and I am not ashamed to say it. Are you?

if you are ashamed of Christ, now then He will also be ashamed of you when you want to enter God's Kingdom. Why would God, allow you into His home when you would much rather have sinful men in your own home? It's time that we show to the world that we are not ashamed!

Prayer: " Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for this message and for all things. Please forgive us of all our sins and we forgive all those who've wronged us. Please help us to never be ashamed and to not hide you in public or in private. Bring us closer to you Lord and help us to regain our rights. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
