THE CURSE OF SHAME: Genesis 3:7 "At that moment (Adam & Eve) they suddenly felt ashamed." Before Adam & Eve's disobedience, there were no inhibition & shame. Since this event, self-consciousness and shame has been an enemy of our soul. Shame is a painful emotion caused by consciousness of guilt, shortcoming, impropriety, humiliation or disgrace. Shame is a form of fear. Let's be like children & drunkards who have no inhibitions & shame. But instead of being drunk with wine, be filled with the God's spirit. The Holy Spirit will help us to be bold & overcome THE CURSE OF SHAME.
THE KEY TO LIFE: Deuteronomy 30:19-20 NLT "Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life." Keys open doors. The door to our dreams is unlocked and opened for us when we choose God's way of doing things & living life. Our love, obedience & commitment to God is THE KEY TO LIFE.
