Many are scared of being a Christian. They are ashamed of being known as a believer or born again Christian. What is the point of being ashamed, knowing well that without being born again one can't enter into God's Kingdom. Will it not be good for believers to be bold and flunt that which God has given unto them which no amount money can buy. It is a gift, bought by the precious blood of his son Jesus. We never struggled for it he just extended it to us with the greatest love, even at the time when we were still into evil. Even while we were yet into all sorts of evil and wickedness, at that time many of our pairs and all those that were also involved in such evil also never survived, they died in there sins. But God spared us alive and sustained us until the appointed time we came to the knowledge of the truth and then He saved us. Why then should we hide our identity as born again Christians, after all we are not better than those that died in there sins. Many have chosen to be nominal Christians, by accepting any garbage that comes due to compromise with the world.

When one encounter Jesus, it always difficult for one to hide it, in fact, it is impossible to hide. Salvation transforms ones life. It radicalizes your whole being; your career, thought, imagination, your conversation, relationship with others, appearance inwardly and outwardly, of a truth, it is total transformation. Everything about you will be controlled by the Spirit of Him that came upon you. He now becomes your director in all things. I don't know if you have experienced it? You will discover that you won't be able to do anything without him. And when you go contrary to His way, you will become restless and start praying for mercy, in fact it might take you sometime to recover from such experience. His way is everlasting and unspeakable peace. The peace that when you start experiencing it you will want others to know about it. His word is too hot to keep in the heart alone, you will see yourself spitting it out in the morning and in the buses, and to individuals. Sometimes they will think you are mad or insane because it is strange to them.

So my friend, when you see yourself being ashamed of Christians or hiding being a born again Christian, it is because you are yet to have encounter with Jesus and it is a big problem. Do something about it now before it is too late.

Mark  8:38 "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."
