I Trust You - Notes - YouVersion.com: "1 John 2:28 NIV
And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming. (1 John 2:28 NIV)
When Christ returns will you be ashamed? Of course at some point in your life you will have felt shame, even if it was not of your own doing. How do you move past your shame? It seems that shame moves gloriously in stages, and yes I said gloriously! I'll explain, first is that awful stage of regret, and the even worse stage of remorse, and then that final glorious stage of repentance. Repentance is what allows us to remain in Him. Are we supposed to be perfect? Sure, give it your best shot, but when you fall short of the Glory, go ahead and work your way towards that other glory called repentance and trust in your God.
Trust- assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone."
