Are you embarrassed by Jesus?
O my God, I trust in Thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. Psalm 25:2
Have you ever been in a conversation where the name of Jesus is brought up and somebody wants to change the subject? It’s just like switching channels on a TV. And some of them claim to be Christians. They don't want to carry a Bible in public. They're embarrassed to talk about the Lord. Some people get embarrassed in a restaurant if you bow your head and mention Jesus as you ask His blessing. They rub their eyebrows or forehead when you pray.
Have you ever asked yourself why they’re ashamed? I think it is because they don’t know what they’re missing in Jesus. You see, salvation is a wonderful gift. God sent His Son to die for us. He rose from the grave for us. He ascended into heaven for us. He’s coming again for us! How can we be ashamed of this?
Next time you go to a restaurant, let your prayer of blessing turn into an evangelistic opportunity with your unsaved friend.
