The Sense of Shame - Friday 12th April 2013

Teacher:- Pastor Balogun

Main Text:- 2samuel 6:16-22

Jesus Left his throne and died for us on the cross of Calvary
He was focused even though the shame was there.
He ignored the shame and pain on the cross of Calvary just so he can fufil his destiny on Earth.
Jesus was focused on the assignment his father sent him

Point 1.
Senses of Shame:
When we prefer dignity above divinity
Dignity in the sense that
" we begin to feel too big and worry about what people will think about us instead of what Jesus thinks of us"

For example, being ashamed of preaching the gospel.

Point 2:
If you prefer dignity above divinity
We can't focus on God
If Jesus was thinking of what people will say on the cross, he would not have died for you and I.

When we are too cautious about what people feel or say about us, it could have a negative impact.
Take for instance, Michal the wife of David despised her husband in her heart and this caused her to never have children
David was dancing before the Lord but Michal felt he was dancing to the maids
2 sam 6:16-22

Think Twice!
How will Jesus feel about me NOT what will people think
Remember Jesus ignored the shame on the cross for you and I.

Deception of Satan.
He has come to kill to steal and to destroy
John 10:10
So don't fall into his nest of making you think of what people will think of you.

When you are in God's presence,
THROW your dignity away

So what are you waiting for.
Why not praise him ?
