'Do not be ashamed'

So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time ...

The world wants us to be "ashamed" of our faith, "ashamed" of testifying about our Lord.

But Paul knew better then, and Christians need to remember they know better now. Paul suffered with beatings and being imprisoned - but never ashamed. Just keep in mind who "called us to a holy life."

Remember, then, the power of God, and share your story and faith.
