Shame or Joy

Shame or Joy

In the garden Adam and Eve were naked and were not ashamed
When they sinned – they were ashamed

On the cross, Christ was naked and He carried our shame
On the cross, Christ was naked and He was not ashamed
He was not ashamed because he bore our shame because He loved us
He was, is not ashamed of us

For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren
Hebrews 2:11

On the cross we became a family, His family –
Excruciating (from the cross) pain bonded us together

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
Christ did not allow the shame to destroy Him. He destroyed the shame by choosing Joy.

Be a workman who is not ashamed – rightly dividing the Word of truth.

Shame condemns but Joy overcomes shame
