When we have Jesus, shame shouldn’t exist. Shame hurts, but we don’t need it. Jesus took all of the shame and the hurt away from us.
Shame is the one thing that always holds me back. I don’t know what kind of shame you have, but I have shame from self harm, my eating disorder, and my porn addiction. These things, don’t happen much anymore, but the shame is still there. Like, I need to hide from God, because I am so guilty.
But, friend, here’s a reminder for the both of us, we don’t need to carry the shame anymore.
When Christ went on the cross He took our shame. He took our sin. We are clean. We are white as snow. There is no reason to hide behind anything, because Christ stands before us.
There is no reason for our shame. Go to Jesus, release that shame.
