I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed (2Ti 1:12)

"I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed.." (2Ti 1:12)

~Adam's sin meant his becoming ashamed in relation to "what people would think of him" if they saw him as he was. That was the beginning of the history of camouflage, hypocrisy, and masked-ego. It eventually led to man becoming ashamed of God and shameless about sin. Therefore, one cannot be a true disciple, until he has embraced the only One that the world was ever fully ashamed of - the Crucified Christ. He at once releases us from false shame. The One who was stripped naked on the Cross now garbs us with the true garment of righteousness that can fully cover our shame; in fact, He is our covering!~
