No Longer Ashamed

 • Golda Dilema • John 8:2–12, Psalm 34:5, Isaiah 54:4, Isaiah 61:7

 

There was a point in my life when I was so ashamed that I didn’t want to associate or talk with people. I had messed up so badly that I didn’t see myself as fit to be with others. I was so down that I didn’t have the confidence to face people. I thought I was so wrong and a great sinner, even though I was already a Christian at the time.

When we mess up, in big ways or small ways, we often feel ashamed. We may think it would be better for us to be away from people or disappear. A failure can cause embarrassment, feeling bad about ourselves, and doubting ourselves. Shame can be used by Satan to push our spirits down. When we feel ashamed, we might start to doubt God’s forgiveness. When we focus on our shame, we start to forget the love of God. When we let shame occupy our minds, we forget who we are in the eyes of God.

What can you do to respond to shame? You can remember Jesus on the cross, who shed His blood for you, taking away your shame. And you can be assured that the blood of Jesus has covered your shame. Every time you sin and you’re filled with shame, you can ponder Jesus’s sacrifice, mercy, and grace for you. Jesus took all your sins upon Himself and paid the price for your wrongdoing with His life. Then God raised Him from the dead, triumphant over sin and death. Now, if you’ve put your trust in Jesus, you are totally forgiven.

God does not want you to live in disgrace and shame. He came to set you free! He invites you to live life with Him, and because He has set you free from shame, you can walk forward with faith and dignity. You are a child of God who bears the name of the Lord, who has completely taken away your shame. • Golda Dilema

• When we do something wrong, we often feel guilty. We can respond to guilt by repenting—turning away from sin and toward Jesus. But sometimes, we feel like we haven’t just done something bad, but like we need to hide or like we are irredeemable. Thankfully, we can bring all these feelings to Jesus. He loves us unconditionally and forgives us fully. Do you feel guilty about anything today? Consider taking a moment to talk to Jesus about it.

• When you feel overwhelmed by shame, who is a trusted Christian who could pray with you and remind you of who you are in Christ? (Romans 8:1; Colossians 1:22; 1 John 1:9)

Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. Psalm 34:5 (NIV)

Put On the New

• Enid Adah Nyinomujuni • Galatians 3:27, Ephesians 4:24, Colossians 3:1–17

 

 “Put on” is a phrase we use every day. Because on a daily basis, we do the physical act of putting on clothes and shoes in order to be clothed.

 

Just as we get clothed physically, we also need to get clothed spiritually. In Ephesians 4:24, we learn that, in Christ, we put on a new nature. In Colossians 3, we see that our new nature is being formed into Jesus’s image, giving us a nature that is after God’s nature.

 

Since our new nature is likened after God’s holy nature, we reject and turn away from sin, anything that goes against God or hurts our neighbor. For instance, in Colossians 3:9-11, we are admonished not to lie to one another because the new nature we have put on does not lie. It “is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator” (verse 10), and God does not lie (Numbers 23:19).

 

God is the One who clothes us with His holiness and righteousness. As soon as we become a Christian, we are given a new “outfit.” In order for us to put on the new nature, we have to put off the old one. In Christ, we have the Holy Spirit, empowering us to choose to live in holiness and righteousness in our words, thoughts, and deeds. God walks alongside us and gives us grace as we put on the new nature and as we are being formed more and more into Jesus’s image. • Enid Adah Nyinomujuni

 

• Reread Colossians 3:1-17. What things are not from our new nature in Christ? What things are from our new nature?

 

• How do Jesus’s death and resurrection give us a new identity?

 

For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Galatians 3:27 (NIV)
