Eyes That See

“I Once Was Blind”

Are You Ashamed of Him?

“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” -Mark 8:38

Jesus said this in a very different generation- nearly 2,000 years ago.  But it is hard for me to imagine how the generation to which He spoke could be more adulterous and/or sinful than the one in which we find ourselves today.  Think of the things in our culture that people are not ashamed of.  Pornography and sexual immorality are not only accepted, but they are also often seen as “cool.”  Not only is this adulterous and sinful generation not ashamed of these things, but it is also proud of them.  We live in a generation in which porn stars are celebreties.

And in this adulterous and sinful generation, which is ashamed of little, we Christians act as if we are ashamed of King Jesus and His words.  He tells us that if we are ashamed of Him and His words, then He will be ashamed of us.

Are you ashamed of Him?
