What should Proud of Jesus mean to Christians? Boasting of the Lord! BE PROUD OF JESUS! Luke 9:26 1. Be proud of the one whom the Gospel proclaims as it's founder, the Lord and Savior. 2. Be proud of the Eternal Son, equal to the Father, yet emptied Himself to become a human being: - who teaches, guides, inspires and saves all who call upon Him. - Be proud of Him. 3. Be proud of the virgin birth by which Jesus came to mankind, as foretold centuries before. 4. Be proud of the miracles Jesus did proving He was the Son of God. - His miracles proved His divine power. - His miracles revealed His mercy, pity and compassion. - His miracles opened blind eyes to see His beautiful creation. - His miracles opened deaf ears to the sounds of His creation. - He comforted and healed the broken hearted. - His promise that one day all who believed in Him would be in Heaven with Him. 5. Be proud of His teachings: - Man's words are just that - words. His Words are alive. - Man's plans, teachings wilt away - His Words endure forever. - Jesus never wrote other than in the sand, yet His Words have brought life to millions. - Every word from the lips of Jesus had meaning. 6. Be proud of the example Jesus set for His followers. - The world's example is nothing but failure, war and death. 7. Be proud to have Jesus as your best friend. - Unworthy as one can be, Jesus will be that best friend. - Who would not want such a friend as Jesus, closer than one's own brother.
