Greetings on this wonderful Wednesday!
As we are all still making sure to stay in line with our goals let’s make sure we are achieving the correct goals. The worst thing is to pursue something only to find out it’s not for you. For example, when we major in Business Administration for three years only to find out our real passion is Education. We feel like we have wasted our time. The same is true when pursuing any goal financially, spiritually, or physically. I have found we often don’t pursue our true passions or goals because we are ashamed of them.
Tim Tebow is currently a great example of a young famous athlete that makes it quite clear what he has a passion for sharing his faith and football. However, he makes it clear that he wouldn’t be as highly favored in football if it wasn’t for his faith in Jesus Christ.
I can only imagine that when Tebow first begin praying on the field back in high school he was probably a little nervous about what others may think or say. He like many of us have decided NOT to be ASHAMED! Three questions to answer in order to live the UNASHAMED LIFE:
1. Does anyone know your true passion?
2. What do you want to be remembered by?
3. Are you making an impact?
I’m not sure what you are unashamed of so I’ll share what I used to be ashamed of:
1. Wanting to remain a virgin until marriage
2. Sharing my faith in Christ Jesus
Surprising I know!:) However, I believe often the things we are ashamed of is really the fear of what would happen if we really embraced our passions! Since overcoming these fears I’ve travelled the world sharing the love of Jesus Christ with thousands and have written a book Not Everyone is Having Sex
Scripture: “If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” (Mark 8:38, NLT)
Call to Action: Today do something you’re usually ashamed of. Make your mark!
