Don’t Be Ashamed Today

Today’s Bible reading is Genesis 36 and Luke 9.

In Luke 9, Jesus has asked his disciples, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” The answers varied. “But who do you say that I am?” He has followed that question up with the revelation that he is going to be killed and on the third day, raised. He has said to them all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” And then, he warns them about being ashamed.

“For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” (Luke 9:26)
