How Christians Can Overcome Shame
- Sin-Hidden and unconfessed sin of a believer in Christ. We must repent and confess of sin to be cleansed of shame. The shame of unconfessed sin causes us to hide, withdrawal, fear, and to have self-pity.
- Abuse- Past or present physical, sexual, or emotional abuse.
- Poor self-image-This can be rooted in rejection, abandonment, and ridicule.
- Seeing yourself as not forgiven and carrying the shame of your former sins.
