“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” – 2 Timothy 1:12 (KJV)
Feeling ashamed to represent Jesus Christ wherever you find yourself will rob you of many blessings, including eternal blessings. You should come to terms with the truth that suffering for Jesus Christ is part of the gospel. If He suffered for us and even died for us, then we should also learn to suffer for Him so that we can rejoice with Him and be blessed (Matthew 5:11–12).
Jesus Christ has records of all the works we are doing for Him, and He will reward us both here on Earth and ultimately when we appear before Him in heaven (2 Corinthians 5:10).
Dear beloved, never allow the devil to fill your heart and mind with shame to shy away from standing for Christ Jesus irrespective of where you find yourself. Reject that feeling by rebuking it in Jesus’ name, and go ahead and do what the Holy Spirit is asking you to do for Jesus Christ.
Feel ashamed to sin or neglect the voice of the Holy Spirit, for whoever knows to do good and does not do it, to them it is sin. (James 4:17). Stand for Christ Jesus always and be blessed.
Amen! God bless you!
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for giving me good counsel today. Please always embolden me by your Spirit to stand for Christ Jesus through the gospel. Amen!
