"Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame." (Romans 10:11)
I don't think it would take much to convince you that we live in a culture that perpetually celebrates its fallen nature and is consistently pursuing to put to shame those who seek to live for the glory of God. For many, it feels like they must continually fight the urge to give in, retreat or stay silent when our culture is constantly shaking a rebellious fist against our Creator. But keep this in mind: The world has no power to put you to shame. That power belongs to God alone. He is the one who has bought your freedom, He alone is the author of salvation, and He has declared that if you have trusted in Christ alone, He will never put you to shame. While the world will always threaten shackles of shame when you seek to live out your faith, you'll find they simply fall off when you turn to the Lord for strength. And in this strength, you'll find that you are able to join in with the Apostle Paul and proclaim, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes..." (Romans 1:16).
