Unashamed Disciples

21st MARCH, 2021

Christ for Youth International

I refuse to be ashamed of sharing the wonderful message of God’s liberating power unleashed in us through Christ! For I am thrilled to preach that everyone who believes is saved — the Jew first, and then people everywhere! [Romans 1:16 TPT]

Let us talk about being ashamed of the gospel. To be ashamed of the gospel is to be embarrassed at the fact that Jesus came to die for our sins and to save us from hell. It means being embarrassed about our association with Jesus. That is absurd and incredulous. Who would want to be ashamed of God? Yet, the decisions we make sometimes and the things we say, show that we are embarrassed to be called Christians.

In the Bible, before the Apostle Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit, he denied Jesus three times. We, however, already have the Holy Spirit with us and yet, we still sometimes choose the world over Him. Fearing the ridicule of friends or desiring a particular social media status often leads us to compromising on our Christian values. We show clearly that we are on the side of the world even though we are foreigners and should not be living by the standards of the world. We are God’s children; we are kingdom people.

The end result for someone who is ashamed of God on earth is not the best either. The Bible says that Jesus Himself will be ashamed of that person in front of His Father. It sounds awful thinking about it, doesn’t it?

Besides, what is there to be ashamed of? Our God is the King of kings. You think people will think you are weird? That will be no surprise as the Bible plainly tells us that the Wisdom of the Gospel is folly to the world. Let us put aside all deceptions and feelings and do what disciples are supposed to do. Share the word and raise other disciples.

Father, forgive us for the times that we failed to take our stand as followers of Jesus. Empower us to share our testimonies as Christians and the thrilling message of salvation with everyone. Amen.
