We Do Not Need to Be Ashamed because...
1. We Come to Hear God's Word
Luke 6:46–49. Our desire is to live approved by Him and not be ashamed.
2. We Worship Him with Our Lips and Heart
Mark 7:1–23. Some people attend church because it's a fad and go to churches because “everyone goes there” : the prestigious members of the community, the poor, and rich. Those Who Are His follow the Father not the fad, fun, or friends. God wants us to honor Him with our words and our hearts (Mark 7:6).
3. Say What We Do and Do What We Say
1 John 5:1–7. Those Who Are His only speak of what they do and they do what they say. Ideals are meaningless unless practiced.
2. We Seek Only to Please Him
Gal 1:6–10; 1 John 3:22. God knows those who seek to please Him and they will not be ashamed.
