As soon as the words are spoken ‘Let us go and do it’, one is ashamed not to be shameless.
It’s amazing how the Fall has flipped things so upside-down: we are ashamed not to be shameless. Thank God that Jesus came to put the world back on its feet (Acts 17:6).
By the way, I almost called this post “Augustine on Pear-Pressure”- which is probably funny if you’ve read his Confessions. If you haven’t, it’s probably not.
