“God has strange ways to accomplish something. His timing, His purpose, and the people He chooses to accomplish something is beyond human comprehension!”
Whoever is ashamed…Luke 9:26
WHAT IS THE BIBLICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF “PROUD OF JESUS”?
As the servants of GOD, it is the duty of all church leaders to awaken the believers with “PRIDE IN CHRIST” without which no one can maintain their Catholic faith because Glory to Christ is not possible without being “PROUD OF JESUS” which was overlooked for 2000 years. – Because of the notion that “PRIDE is always a deadly sin”, believers were reluctant to express their PRIDE IN CHRIST in public in the past.
WHY SHOULD CATHOLICS BE PROUD OF JESUS?
Because Jesus never wrote other than in the sand, yet His Words have brought life to billions. – Jesus was a model for social harmony. Jesus taught His followers to love enemies as God loves them. – Teachings of Jesus are worthy of PRIDE and Glory – God, If I hurt others, give me the strength to apologize, if people hurt me, give me the strengthen to forgive! -Be kind and forgive one another as God forgave you. – Ephesians 4:32 esv – “If you love only those who love you, what is great in that?” – St. Matthew 5:46.
In addition, few would argue that this one man has had more impact on the world than any person in history.
Why Catholic Movement for “PRIDE IN CHRIST” Now ?
- To revers the centuries-old belief that “PRIDE is always a deadly sin”.
- Church leaders to begin reminding the believers to be PROUD OF JESUS as part of their sermons.
- Believers to begin expressing their “PRIDE IN CHRIST” in public places.
- PROUD OF JESUS to start a new era of Prideful and Boastful publications for the believers.
- And most importantly because PROUD OF JESUS will bring Glory to Christ in a much more meaningful way.
PRIDE or being PROUD is holy and is not sinful as long as we ultimately acknowledge GOD in our boasting for what He has accomplished for us and through us. Galatians 6:14 –– Paul speaks of healthy PRIDE we should have in ourselves and others (2 Cor 5:12; 7:4; 8:24; Gal 6:4) – Saint Paul said, “Therefore in Christ Jesus I have found reason for boasting in things pertaining to God”. 1Corinthians 1:31
