We were all lost for a moment in our lives, but just because we have made mistakes that doesn't mean that we have to hang our heads in shame..No! It means that once we ask for forgiveness and we ask Jesus into our heart, that we can walk in freedom and we can walk tall by showing others around us the mercy that God gave us by giving us His grace!
Common Religion says.."If you make a mistake, you have to walk around hiding your face in shame.."
A personal Relationship with Christ says.."God has forgiven you and you don't have to be ashamed anymore because He has made you free and you have another chance to do right..If you fall..He will catch you!"
As Christians, We don't have to feel constantly ashamed of our mistakes because Jesus has already died for those mistakes, He has already given His grace to us on the Cross!
When all seemed lost, God sent His only Son to die upon a Cross!
We can leave the ugliness of our sin at the foot of the Cross and look to God for a better way!
We can live a life unashamed because He took that shame upon Himself and though it hurt..He did it unashamed because He wasn't ashamed to call us "His" I thank Him for giving us a new life to be lived the right way..the way that we should have always lived, in good health, forgiving others, being obedient, serving God, loving others as Christ loved us!
I'm so glad that He saw it fit to give us another chance! That we now have hope because of His sacrifice and now we can leave our shame behind and move forward into His calling for our lives!
"but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation."
