Are you ashamed of the gospel? Are you ashamed to pray in front of others? Are you ashamed to bless your food in public?
If we are ashamed, then we’re ashamed of God, therefore, we are denying him. His word say, if we deny him, he will deny us.
When we deny God, it’s our pride, pleasing the flesh. Check your pride. You don’t want to allow your pride to get in the way of yourself, to the point that you are denied by God. You don’t want God to say to you, go away, I never knew you.
II Timothy 2:12 (KJV) – if we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us.
Proverbs 11:2 (KJV) – when pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Matthew 7:23 (KJV) – and then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
