Ashamed of Jesus and His Words #371

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. (Mark 8:38)

In yesterday’s passage, the apostle Peter exhorted Christians not to be ashamed of Christ in spite of suffering (1 Pet. 4:16). In today’s verse, Jesus explains what form being ashamed of him takes. He also tells what will happen to those who are ashamed of him. Christ cannot be separated from his word (after all, he is “the Word”, Jno. 1:1, 14). So, if one is ashamed of Christ’s words, then he is ashamed of Christ. One shows no allegiance to Christ while denying the words of his New Testament. When Jesus Christ returns he will be ashamed of (deny) those who showed their shame of him by refusing his words. Always remember that Jesus “has the words of eternal life” (Jno. 6:68). Never be ashamed of Jesus and his words. Be wise; Hear the words of Christ and do them (Matt. 7:24-25).
