Holy BOASTING! "PROUD OF JESUS" In Romans 15:17 – 22 , Paul speaks about boasting. The question is, can a Christian boast or be proud of someone or something? - The answer is, yes, for all boasting is not sinful. Pride and boasting in ourselves is not good, but as long as we ultimately acknowledge God in our pride and boasting, boasting is holy. “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast in the Lord”. (Jer. 9:23-24) There is something curious about boasting. Despite the fact that nobody like a braggart, everybody brags anyway. People boast about anything and everything — their grandchildren, their bank accounts, their waistlines, their bowling averages, their travel plans, their accomplishments, sometimes even their indiscretions. May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Galatians 6:14 ) __________________________________________________ Be proud of Jesus Christ because Jesus lived a miracle-filled and empowered existence from his conception to his ascension. * Of all human conceptions, Jesus Christ stands as miraculous.
