Feeling ashamed or embarrassed?  Macmillan dictionary

 

Ashamed and Embarrassed

Feeling guilty or embarrassed because you have done something wrong, or think that you have not reached a standard that people expect. Ashamed of something and worried about what other people will think of you



Sheepish;  Ashamed or embarrassed about something that you have done


Foolish; Embarrassed because of something stupid that you have done



Contrite; Very sorry or ashamed because you have done something bad

Repentant; Ashamed and sorry because you recognize that you have done something wrong


Abashed; Embarrassed or ashamed about something that you have done


Feel and look small; To feel or look ashamed or unimportant, especially because of something that someone has said or done.


Mark 8:38 If you are ashamed of me and of my teaching in this godless and wicked day, then the Son of Man will be ashamed of you when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."

These defining words were spoken for a reason! Jesus knew that under the right circumstances believers might become reticent and not stand up for their belief in Him. Have you ever redden when asked about your faith and tried to not say something that might offend someone or make them uncomfortable? I would guess most all have been put into such a scenario and have hedged a little.

We are admonished to; 1 Peter 3:15 But have reverence for Christ in your hearts, and honor him as Lord. Be ready at all times to answer anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you, but do it with gentleness and respect.

Can you pledge from this day forward that you will obey 1 Peter 3:15 and never again allow your testimony for Christ be diminished because of being ashamed of Christ and his sayings?
