Historically, believers were always PROUD of Jesus in their hearts but were reluctant to express their PRIDE IN CHRIST in public because of the Catholic belief that being Prideful or Boastful is always sinful. – 1 Corinthians 1:31 ” Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord. ”
Let’s hope church leaders would consider it as their duty to remind believers to be PROUD of Jesus and His Gospel. Being Prideful or Boastful is holy and is not sinful as long as we ultimately acknowledge God in our bragging and boasting about what He has accomplished in us and through us.
