Bible Study Devotional – Day 218 – Commentary Luke 9:26 – Who is Jesus ashamed of?

Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. (Luke 9:26)

We have a friend who is one of the sweetest men in the world, wanting to help anyone in any way he can. He’s definitely not ashamed of Jesus and the Bible, stopping joggers on his street. He tells them about Jesus as he walks down the street with them, as fast as he can with his walker. I’m sure many joggers avoid his street, not realizing he cares enough to pray for them.

Not all of us have it in our heart to evangelize. That doesn’t mean we’re ashamed of Jesus or Jesus is ashamed of us. Jesus tells us to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength, and with all your mind;” (Luke 10:27a) This verse is about our relationship with God. It is only when we don’t believe Jesus is who He says He is that He will be ashamed of us when He meets us in person. Peter will deny Him three times even though He believes Jesus is the Messiah.

Dear Jesus, I love you and long to be close to you. Be my refuge and my shield, so I can rest in your arms and put my hope in Your Word. We love one another, and there will be no shame. In Your Precious Name, I pray. Amen.

  1. I am not a good shepherd/evangelist. It is not that I don’t believe or that I am ashamed because nothing could be further from the truth. For some reason I don’t feel comfortable. I am OK if someone else brings it up and wants to talk. I guess the best shepherd that I know is our cousin, Diana. She is not afraid to speak the word at all. I love the verse Luke 10:27. I love your prayer today, Jody.

    1. I’m glad my prayer was meaningful to you. Diana is definitely a good evangelist and prayer warrior. She speaks the Christian language as if there is no other. As I said, not everyone has the gift of evangelism. But you have other great gifts — teaching and hospitality to name a couple.
