Kill Shame

The opposite of shame is a sense of honour and confidence. Paul once wrote that he was not ashamed of the good news about Jesus.

Romans 1:16-18

16 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. 17 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."

18 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.

Paul had confidence in the Good News. He was proud of its power to bring people back to God. The good news is that any of us can be right with God. Through faith in Jesus, we have access to the Father. Honour this news today through your confident obedience to God.
