Your association with Jesus Christ and His Church is the greatest, most honourable and inspiring identity you could ever have. Celebrate it at every opportunity. Seize every moment to glorify Jesus Christ.
Irrespective of anyone’s perception of Christianity, we have the most dignified identity; don’t take it lightly! What could be more sublime than being an associate of the God-kind? Always be excited that you’re a Christian. Be unapologetic in declaring your unwavering allegiance to Christ, His Church and other believers. Nothing, and no one should ever make you dissociate yourself from Christ or repudiate your oneness with Him! Even the fiercest threats or persecution from the adversary shouldn’t get you to cower.
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels (Mark 8:38).
Recall the priceless words of the Lord Jesus in our opening verse. If you’re ashamed to let the world—your friends, family members, colleagues, etc—know that you’re born again, and that you’re a member of the household of faith, the Master also will be ashamed to acknowledge you before the Father and the angels.
