Few Christians are unashamed of Jesus Christ

Few Christians are Unashamed of JESUS CHRIST
If you are not someone who is actively following Jesus by daily picking up your cross, it’s pretty easy for satan to get you to be ashamed of the gospel and ashamed of Jesus Himself.  All that satan has to do for you is put someone in your path that you respect or look up to, someone that you don’t want to offend at work or at school, and as soon as that person is in front of you and blasphemes God or speaks evil of the gospel, you won’t want to say anything.  You will become shy, timid, you will just know that if you say anything this person may be against you and your relationship may be damaged.  The devil will put this scenario right on your lap and then the devil will just sit back and watch to see what you will do.  In THESE times will you stand up for JESUS?  Will you be unashamed to make a stand in the TRUTH?  Will you deny yourself, will you take up your cross in THAT moment?  Will you take a good stand for your Savior?  Or will you pretend that you don’t know the truth, will you shrink back, will you say nothing?  I want to read to you what Jesus says in Luke chapter 9 verse 26; “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels.”  If you are ashamed of Jesus He is going to deny you and be ashamed of you in front of His angels and in front of GOD.  Are we daily taking up our cross?  And are we unashamed of the gospel that brings us everlasting life? Or will we shrink back and pretend that we don’t know Jesus as soon as someone comes in our path that the devil has strategically planted there?  May the grace of Jesus be with you and may the strength of GOD be in you.
