Can Your Faith Be Touched?

Are we ashamed of Jesus?

Maybe?

Personally, when my friends look at me a little bit oddly and just can’t figure out why anyone would spend their entire life teaching about the Bible and Jesus.

or…

when we try to prove something that we don’t need to prove because we’ve forgotten the security we have in Jesus.

or…

when we hide behind our safe walls and don’t take risks for the sake of the Gospel.

Are we ashamed of Jesus?

This may sound odd, but if we’re not noticed and we’re not causing some sort of waves by putting our faith to work and living boldly in Jesus, are we acting like we are ashamed of Jesus by being afraid to live out loud in our faith where our faith can be noticed?

Because Jesus is never ashamed of us. In whatever state we are in. Broken, sinful, hurtful and hurting, Jesus is never ashamed of us and goes so far as to call us his friends before the angels and the heavenly courts. We who don’t deserve to be given a second chance by God are presented proudly as His people.

If Jesus is not ashamed of you, how at all can we act like we are ashamed of Jesus? Instead live our faith out loud so that it can be seen and asked of us, who is this person that you are talking about called Jesus.

Can your faith be seen? Can your faith be touched by someone else?

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began.                                                                             2 Timothy 1:8-9
