May those who hope in you
not be disgraced because of me,
O Lord, the LORD Almighty;
may those who seek you
not be put to shame because of me,
O God of Israel.
(Psalms 69:6 (NIV))
Do our actions reflect the fact that we proclaim salvation through the atoning blood of Jesus?
Do you ever find yourself doing things that embarrass other people? Do you embarrass other believers because of your actions? We are all representatives of Jesus. Have you ever heard the saying that we are to be the hands and feet of Jesus until He returns? Would the hands of Jesus do what we sometimes do? Would the feet of Jesus walk where we sometimes walk?
I know that it has become a very worn out saying, but it is very true – What would Jesus do? We must always remember that we are to be ambassadors of salvation, grace and mercy and not ambassadors of embarrassment and disgrace.
The next time that you find yourself in a situation that is difficult or could potentially place you, and therefore place Jesus, in a disgraceful dilemma, reflect upon these words.
