God will not leave us to shame. Because he cares for his own name and renown, he will defend and protect those who bear his name. He will forgive us and preserve us. He does this by “shamelessly” covenanting with us broken people and committing to save us and teach us his ways. It is his plan to forgive us and redeem us through his Son, Jesus Christ. He will not abandon us nor leave us; he will do it [not for anything that we have done, but…] for the sake of his great name (Isaiah 48:9 and Ezekiel 20:9).
