"For some reason, we think our shame too great a burden to carry for Christ, because we have found it too great a burden to carry. But Christ tells us “Why do you carry it? Why do you ask Me to carry it? Have I not taken it when I died for you?” And in that response, we realize that our shame is not anyone’s to carry, for it is meant to be put to death along with our sin. Beloved, you are not this mistake, for you are more than conquerers in Christ; He broke those chains, so why do you hold onto something that cannot hold you? Reach for Christ, those are the arms that can sustain you and renew you, those are the arms that will never reject you."
