Not ashamed. Christ went public for you at Calvary ..on the Cross.

He's never felt embarrassed 'bout you, because He created you and loves you. He now intercedes for you. Wants you to be fruitful and succeed in the will of God. He did. 

Idea.. why don't we take up the cross, deny ourselves, stay in-touch, follow Him closely, and go public for Him boldly? He said "If you will confess me before men, I will confess you." 

Real Christians don't always enjoy the best of everything.. some things are just far from the best. But they try to make the best of everything.. for the Lord's sake. The Holy Spirit works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure--we want to please and rep the Lord well. 

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” ~ Jesus, John 16:33

Live it, pray about it, be it--an on-fire believer with godly character, and go tell it. You know how love is not irritable, but you can kind of tell the character of man by what it takes to annoy him. 

Small men are irritated by small things. Bigger people are finally annoyed by big things (they text all things and patient)--but they won't put up with sin and all that's wrong. It moves them to ask.. How can I fix that?

Some other good ways to tell about the character of a man is where he spends his time and money. Ask yourself.. where to I love to?

Watch their actions--they do speak louder than words. Godly character is shown in how you honor the Lord in private as well as in public.. by how you consistently act in any situation.

Remember, whatever you give up to follow or serve Christ both privately and openly.. will be more than made up for. You won't regret it for even one sec in eternity. Love wouldn't keep silent when the time is so short and so much is at stake. But how cool will it be when you see your loved ones right there all-out celebrating with you.. and with God who'll be so glad.. instead of just cookin' away.. far far away in H-E-double-hockey-sticks. facebook.com/shareJesus
