8Do not be ashamed, then, of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel, relying on the power of God, 9who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works but according to his own purpose and grace. This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, 10but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 11For this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher, 12and for this reason I suffer as I do. (2 Timothy 1:8-12a, NRSV)
We should not be ashamed of the truth we know. We need to boldly proclaim the message of love and hope we have been given.
God saves us from the world around us and gives us life abundantly. We should tell everyone about this.
So do not be ashamed no matter what it gets you. Boldly proclaim God’s love for the world!
