So they went on their way from the presence of the Council, rejoicing that they had been considered worthy to suffer shame for His name. Acts5:41
In The Church I was shamed by the pastor for rightly discerning false teaching the camp and boldly calling it out. (Warning & exposing the darkness.)
In The Church I was shamed by the pastor for caring for and helping suffering Christians. (Loving one another; loving Christians.)
In the assembly (ekklesia) , I know that I am allowed to use my spiritual gifts that He has given me, as He leads me by His Spirit, to be a witness to the world, boldly preach truth, to minister to & help the suffering, and to edify the saints.
And there, I am not shamed for doing so.
