Shame Off You

Christine Caine teaching on how God want to take the shame of our past off of us. Read Transcript

You know, when I was born, I was

left in a hospital, unnamed and unwanted.

I experienced sexual abuse at the hands of many different men

for over a decade of my life.

I was a young woman that was full of unforgiveness, that

was full of bitterness, that was full

of shame, and guilt, and condemnation.

I was so angry.

I never really thought that I could get past my past.

But then I encountered the reality of a relationship

with Jesus Christ, and I discovered

that my past does not need to define my future,

that I am not the workmanship of someone else's mistake,

but that I am God's workmanship.

Ephesians two verse ten says that we are God's workmanship,

recreated in Christ Jesus for good works

that God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Although a whole lot of bad things were done to me,

I was able to make what Jesus did

for me greater than what anyone else had done to me.

Because of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross,

because of that blood that was shed at Calvary,

I am able to move beyond the abuse, and the pain,

and the struggle, and the unforgiveness,

and the brokenness of my past into the awesome future

that Jesus Christ died to give me.

He came not just so that I could exist,

but so that we could have life and life more abundant.

I want to encourage you, no matter what

has happened to you, no matter what mistakes you have made,

no matter what failures you have made.

I want you to know that if you woke up this morning

and there's still breath in your lungs, it is not too late.

Your life is not over.

God has a plan, he has a purpose,

he has a destiny for you.

The enemy is a liar, but he is very loud.

You need to replace the loud lies of the enemy

with the truth of God that is found in His word.

You are not an accident.

You were created on purpose, for a purpose.

You are God's workmanship.

You are created in the image of God

and filled with God given purpose and destiny.

The same Jesus that came to this unnamed, unwanted, broken,

ashamed young woman, wiped away the mess of my past,

gave me a brand new life, and a hope,

and a future-- that same Jesus is right there with you now.

He can give you a life beyond your past.

I want to declare what Jesus Christ declared over your life.

He said, "Shame off you."

The world says, shame on you, but I am declaring, shame off

you, in Jesus' name.
