What is shame and what effect does it have on you? It is different from guilt. Guilt is when you realise you did something wrong. Shame is when you believe you are what you do. Your entire identity is based on your failures & mistakes. The effects of this can range from mild embarrassment to an awful sense of unworthiness that cuts a person off from a meaningful relationship with God and with each other. We struggle to receive anything from God if we believe that He is judging us on what we do.
The good news of grace is that it goes to the deepest parts of our lives and shows us that Jesus took every bit of shame and dealt with it. You can be truly free from shame and guilt - all the free gift of Jesus!
