Shame, one of the greatest enemies of the Gospel good news, tells us we’re forgiven but still not worthy. Yet Jesus came that we might have life and have it to the full. Join us as we learn to trade the dark cloud of shame for living in the light of God’s mercy.
This week’s message addresses the hidden epidemic of shame. Within our culture, shame is a barrier between ourselves and connecting with God. This shame is not something that God intended for us. In fact, Jesus hates shame because it is something that drives us from God, rather than drawing us near. Instead, Jesus offers mercy as a remedy for shame, inviting you to come closer.
SHUTTING DOWN SHAME
When shame screams, reminding you of what you’ve done, the God who stoops, kneels down and whispers, reminding you of who you are. God did not intend for you to carry the burden of shame. Jesus was sent, not to condemn, but to save you from sin and its separation from God.
