If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels. (Mark 12:34)
Have you ever been ashamed of God?
Paul cautioned Timothy to “not be ashamed of our message nor of me his prisoner.”
It is not unusual for Christians to face ridicule for what God has done and what He says. Especially when we live in a time when His words are no longer accepted.
But think about these times for a minute.
Just because someone says, “I don’t believe in God”, does that mean that God goes away? Are they no longer going to stand before Him? Are they dismissed from all God requires of them and from His punishment?
Of course not.
God’s actions sometimes confuse us because of our limited understanding of what He is doing and our limited ability to make a proper judgment. But He is not wrong. Never has been. Never will be.
Job thought He was wrong. But Job learned, and teaches us, that he was in no position to pass judgment on the actions of God.
The apostles thought Jesus was wrong about a number of things, but they came to realize he was never wrong about anything.
Don’t be ashamed of God. Strive to understand why He does what He does and says what He says. But even if you cannot come to an understanding, trust Him. He is right. We are not.
