In this episode of the podcast, Bethany is joined by WE team member Katie Morin to talk about the topics of shame, vulnerability, and belonging. Bethany and Katie discuss the problems with the way that unbelievers approach these subjects, and how we ought to view them in light of the gospel. They also discuss what we ought to do with our shame, and how our identity in Christ gives us belonging.
Encouragement from this episode:
Bethany and Katie shared about—
- The difference between a worldly perspective on shame and a biblical one
- Bringing our failures to Christ rather than claiming that we are enough on our own
- Having friends that love you enough to point out when you’re in sin
- Letting your identity in Christ fulfill your desire for acceptance and belonging
“Yes, I am not enough. Yes, I am a sinner. But the beauty of the Christian story is that it doesn’t end there. The beauty of the gospel is that there is good news because we serve a God who says ‘My grace is sufficient for you, my power is made perfect in your weakness.'” (Katie Morin)
