25 For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself? 26 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. (Luke 9)
If the person in this verse is an obvious unbeliever, an unsaved person, a 'non-elect'.... why would Jesus say He will be ashamed?
Why would Jesus be "ashamed" of someone who was not His own
? Elsewhere, we have Jesus just telling those who don't belong to Him to depart from Him
because He never knew them.
I wonder if the words "will be ashamed of him" describe a more relational attitude toward these ones.
