For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. (Romans 10:11)
Since we are free from the motivating power of shame, we are now under a new motivating power of righteousness.
It is especially interesting that professional psychiatrists recognize the power and influence of shame in shaping people today. It drives human behavior. Many have misdiagnosed their own problems and conditions. This has caused many to try to fix their behavior with more and more doses of shame and guilt. Instead of curing the problem, shame perpetuates the problem.
The cure is at the cross of Jesus Christ. Jesus took our condition and we were engrafted into Him. Now, God sees us In Christ. We must consistently see ourselves in the light of the death, burial, and resurrection. We reign in life through the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness through one man, Jesus Christ.
Confession: I am the righteousness of God in Christ. I reign in life through one man, Jesus Christ.“For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:17)
