Overcoming Shame



Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the weight of your shame? In this week’s message, Ben Stuart shares how Jesus wants to set us free from our shame and how you can experience it in your own life today!

Key Takeaway

Jesus takes our shame away because He wants to, and He will work and heal you deeper than you're ready for Him if you let Him.

  1. Jesus takes our shame away because He has the power to and because He wants to. The law can tell you that you're dirty. But it can't make you clean. You need a hero to take it away. And that's who Jesus is. He doesn't just love you. He likes you.
  2. Jesus will work on you deeper than you're ready for Him to work. You've got to let Him know and acknowledge that you're sick. He will see what you present Him with, find the deeper issue, and heal you there.


"The message of Christianity is not to turn over a new leaf and try harder. It is to admit your need and let Him change you from the inside out."
