Reframing Shame

When we experience shame, we sense we are not as we were meant to be. This is a normal feeling and part of the human experience. Shame becomes problematic when we respond as Adam and Eve did, hiding behind fig leaves and thus, hiding from ourselves, each other, and God. 

We experience freedom from shame through living in Christ, who loves us and gave Himself for us (Galatians 2:22). Jesus doesn’t cover our sin and shame with better “leaves.” He gives us a new life and a new name. We are no longer slaves and orphans but beloved sons and daughters of God.
