Shame | Part 1

To every person shame is the experience of feeling, or the state of being, inferior. If you are living under the weight of condemnation or a sense of disgrace, you are not certainly not able to flourish in life. Instead of having dominion, shame can dominate and be painful. Good news! - Through the power of the Cross, there is freedom from shame no matter how recent, or long ago the events occurred.

We don’t want anyone to think less of themselves in Jesus. Jesus has set us all free so we can walk confidently in liberty from all that may cause us shame. This series will help release the shackles of shame upon your life!

  3. SHAME IS NOT MY NAME

  4. When you were spiritually dead because of your sins and

    because you were not free from the power of your sinful self, God made you alive with Christ, and he forgave all our sins. He canceled the debt, which listed all the rules we failed to follow. He took away that record with its rules and nailed it to the cross. God stripped the spiritual rulers and powers of their authority. With the cross, he won the victory and showed the world that they were powerless. Colossians 2:13–15 (NCV)
  5. EVERY TIME YOU SIN AND LIVE IN SHAME, IT DEFEATS

    THE PURPOSE OF THE CROSS
  6. Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud

    of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1–2 (NIV)
  7. I’m a mystery to myself, for I want to do

    what is right, but end up doing what my moral instincts condemn. And if my behaviour is not in line with my desire, my conscience still confirms the excellence of the law. And now I realise that it is no longer my true self doing it, but the unwelcome intruder of sin in my humanity. For I know that nothing good lives within the flesh of my fallen humanity. Romans 7:15–20 (TPT)
  8. The longings to do what is right are within me,

    but will-power is not enough to accomplish it. My lofty desires to do what is good are dashed when I do the things I want to avoid. So if my behaviour contradicts my desires to do good, I must conclude that it’s not my true identity doing it, but the unwelcome intruder of sin hindering me from being who I really am. Romans 7:15–20 (TPT)
  9. SHAME MAKES YOU SILENT

  10. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for

    each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16 (NIV)
  11. PAIN MAKES YOU PRIVATE

  12. The Lord is close to all whose hearts are crushed

    by pain, and he is always ready to restore the repentant one. Psalm 34:18 (TPT)
  13. FORGIVENESS BRINGS YOU FREEDOM

  14. So if the Son sets you free, you will be

    free indeed. John 8:36 (ESV)
