your shame will not last forever

Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonical foods, which are of no value to those who eat them. We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.
The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering, but the bodies are burned outside the camp. And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.
(hebrews 13.9-14)

our only ceremonical food now is probably communion. partaking the bread and wine does not draw us closer to God, nor does it make us supernatural. it is outside the gate where we confess our sins. as i tear my mask and share the shame that is when i get closer to God. you get closer to someone only when you share what he goes through, isn't it? many of us fear to show our real self, fearing that we need to live with the shame forever. a king might fear his shameful record be recorded in history. but what about us, the nobody, who are we afraid of actually? even for the king, this is the good news - we do not have an enduring city. meaning what you are shameful of will not last forever. so fear not. live as if there is no tomorrow.

thank you mummy for taking care fo me
thank you daddy for looking out for me
thank you all you out there for the good times and the nice meals
i know i should had say it more, i love you and i cherish you

i share what's in my heart
sorry, i really don't mean to hurt
if i know that it hurts, i'll rather the pain was on me
i hope the day will come you will see what's in me

don't be embarrassed to be yourself
don't be embarrassed to say you care
don't be embarrassed to say you are sorry
live as if there is no tomorrow

yes, tell the girl you like her. your shame will not be forever if she rejects you. but if she loves you the same way, you can share a lifetime with her :)
