Do not be ashamed as a Christian!
16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. 1 Peter 4: 16
Believers must reject any shame for genuinely suffering for the sake of Jesus. We should boldly give glory to God, in the name of Christ, right in the middle of our suffering for Him.
It is an honour to carry the title of Christian, if it truly indicates our identity in Christ, and our place in God’s family forever. In a world that ridicules Christianity and Christian values, this is a honour to physical persecution. If we are different enough from the world, and close enough to being Christ-like, Christ centered, that the world hates us, it is a sign we are doing Christianity right!
