Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. (Psalm 34:5)
Have you noticed the radiance on the faces of some believer's? It has nothing to do with their skin color or their physical beauty. The radiance of knowing Christ intimately is there for everyone to see in these children of God.
The promise above speaks of a specific blessing that every person born into this world can experience. If we look to Jesus Christ, whatever shame that we may have endured in our lives till then can be washed away by the power of his blood.
The blood of Jesus Christ is powerful to wash away shame of whatever cause and make us new creatures filled with eternal hope and joy.
The Bible says,
"See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame." (1 Peter 2:6)
The choice is there for everyone who hears the good news of the gospel. Accept or reject Jesus Christ.
And what's the tragedy involved with rejecting Christ? Nothing but shame!
Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. (Daniel 12:2)
At the resurrection, some will awake to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Have you looked to Jesus? Though you face problems and trials while living here on earth, your reward is secure in heaven. And as this promise says,
"Your face will never be covered with shame."
