In Mark 8:38 NKJV, Jesus said: “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” An “adulterous and sinful generation” should be ashamed. In John 8:12 NKJV, Jesus said: “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.’” When sinners should be ashamed, but are not, Christians must not be ashamed, but often are! Paul said in 2 Timothy 1:12 NKJV: “For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.” Sin is shameful, obeying Jesus Christ is not!
