It appears as if history is being made in the Christian-world by pastor Joel Osteen with – PROUD OF JESUS.
Bible says…Jesus is a friend of Believers John 15:14.
It is my greatest desire to author the 1st “PROUD OF JESUS” publication because Churches were silent over PROUD OF JESUS since Christianity began 2,000 ago. Glory to Christ is not possible without being PROUD of Jesus and His Gospel because no one could maintain Christian fail or claim to be a believer without PRIDE IN CHRIST.
Let’s publish the 1st Christian publication to boast in Christ as an electronic publication ( e-book format ) – ” PROUD OF JESUS” to bring glory and honor to Christ in a much more meaningful way and make it available for public view world-wide.
I pray that I have the courage to say it in public:
Mark 8:38, Hebrews 11:16, Psalm 119:6, Isaiah 50:7, Romans 1:16 Whosoever is ashamed of me and my words.
Being prideful or boastful is holy and is not sinful as long as we acknowledge God in our bragging and boasting about what He has accomplished in us and through us. – Romans 15:17 , 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) – God Himself even said He was pleased with (proud of) Jesus Christ on two occasions—at Jesus’ baptism and at His transfiguration (Matthew 3:17; 17:5)
Let’s hope that historians, theologians, scholars, and church leaders of all denominations would consider it as their duty to address the Biblical significance of being proud of Jesus because glory to Christ is not possible without PRIDE IN CHRIST.
Romans 15:17, Luke 9:26, Whosoever is ashamed of me ….
– Jesus was a model for social harmony. Jesus taught His followers to love enemies as God loves them.
– “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
