No More Shame
Read: ROMANS 10:8b-13
“No one who believes in him will be put to shame” (v. 11).
Several years ago I was demoted at my job. My bosses were satisfied with my work, but the crew I was leading was growing and they didn’t feel I was the right person to be in charge. It was a blow to my ego; I felt hurt and ashamed.
At church that Sunday we sang Graham Kendrick’s “Knowing You, Jesus.” The phrase “No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame” soothed my heart like balm on chapped hands. When we trust Jesus in our hearts and take his name on our lips, we are justified and saved—even at work! It was a lesson I’ll never forget.
Lord Jesus, you are in my heart and on my lips. Thank you for taking away my shame! AMEN.
