I have learned that unless we are willing to publicly humiliate ourselves for Christ, there is fear of man in us and we have yet to submit that to God. We need to be willing to be real with people and not pretend that we are "holier than thou". Although our goal in Christ is to be Holy, Christ is the only True and Holy One. There are none who are worthy, no not one. But Jesus is worthy of all glory and honour and praise.
Mark 8:35-38 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. (36) For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? (37) Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (38) Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
