I think we have all done something that we are ashamed of at some point or another, I know I have. Maybe it was saying something out of anger that you didn’t really mean, or maybe you made bad decisions after a night out on the town. We have all done something that we’re not proud of. Luke 9:26 NKJV says, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the Holy angels.” I wouldn’t say I’m ashamed of Jesus or the word of God but I have had times where I could have said something and didn’t. Times where I felt like God Himself was telling me to do something and I just brushed that feeling off. Times when I could have spread the word and chose to stay silent. I wasn’t ashamed necessarily, but I wasn’t proud either. That’s not the kind of Christian I want to be. It’s something I struggle with. I can type a message on this computer all day, but for some reason when I get out in the “real” world I clam up. I’ve been praying for the kind of strength that would allow me to stand up and speak in name of God and not be ashamed. The last thing I want to hear is that God Himself is ashamed of me. I pray for wisdom that I would know the word and have the right thing to say at the right time also. I also pray that someone may read this blog and at the very least it would spark an interest in the bible or God. I have felt the power of God, I have felt the presence of the Holy Spirit and the change it can have in your life. My only goal for these posts is that in some way I could share my thoughts and experiences with as many people as possible and maybe they could feel the power of God like I have.
