Shame and Identity

image

Shame: we tend to view ourselves through shame glasses,  Jesus bore the SHAME of the cross for us, he bore our shame. I never thougt about the shame of the cross, but he was innocent and death on the cross besides being painful and deadly bore a stigma of shame.

We tend to get our identity from what we think others think, feel,  or believe about us. Jesus took that shame for us so that our identity is in him. God deleted the record of our sins, misdeeds, and shame. He no longer recalls them. Our identity is to be found in what he says about me/you/us. He finds joy in me/you/us.

He knew us before we were conceived and loved us prior to us being born or even having a chance to mess up. He braved the cross and despised the shame of it,  he now occupies the highest seat of dominion to endorse/advocate my/your/our innocence. We find our destiny there.

His death brought about our ability to have life un hampered by the sin nature. Colosians 2:6-11 Your daily walk is no different from the initial embrace when you first understand your divine assosiation in him…it is Christ that God finds an accurate and complete expression of himself,  in a human body!…Jesus mirrors our completeness and endorses our true identity. He is I AM in us….sin’s authority in the human body was stripped off you in him dying YOUR death.”

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.
