I Am Not Ashamed

“Follow peace with all men and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). This article is about the fundamental foundation of our relationship with God—holiness. If we look at holiness as a set of rules, a list of things we should do and things we should not do, then we have misunderstood the whole concept of holiness. Holiness is designed to be a blessing to God’s people and is the result of a love relationship with God.

The world would like the church to compromise God’s Word. There are some churches that would suggest we compromise a little bit. Some say we should not be so different from the world.

As I walk the halls of Lockport High School, I see many different faces, each representing a unique personality inside. I am one of those students. I hold a story no one can see on the outside. I am the child who was raised in a fatherless home. I didn’t have a daddy to tuck me into bed at night or to take me for ice cream instead of a nap. At the age of eight, I rebelled against my mother and was rude and snobby. But looking at me from the outside, neither student nor any teacher could tell I was ever like that.

As people look from the outside now they just see a people pleaser and overachiever, but I am neither of those things. My success in life does not come from academics or from … Read More »
