Read II Timothy 1:8-12
...nevertheless I am not ashamed. II Timothy 1:12
I will never forget the day that my dad looked at me and said, “I am so ashamed of you, Kurt!” Okay, I should not say the “the day” because, truth be told, there were many times I heard those words! I wish that were not the case, but I do remember one time in particular that it hurt much worse than the other times. I had done something dumb (another shocker, LOL) and I had greatly disappointed my parents. I remember the hurt and regret that I had in my heart! There are many times in my life that I have “let others down” with either my actions or attitude. Sometimes I had done things I knew I shouldn’t have done, but at other times I “let people down” by not doing something I knew I should have done! Truthfully, we all are guilty of the very same thing! Teenager, you may have heard the words, “I am ashamed of you” from someone recently. Take heart, you can get forgiveness from Christ, as well as those you have hurt, and make some changes for the future!
However, I never want it to be said that I am ashamed of the Christ! Christ has done so very much for me. I am enjoying the “abundant Christian life” because of Christ. He has saved me. He leads me and guides me every day. He gives me joy. He answers my prayers. He loves me. He continues to forgive me when I fail him over and over again! I guess what I am saying is that God has been so good to
me – and you! How could we ever be ashamed to bear the name of Christ?
