What should Proud of Jesus mean to Christians? Boasting of the Lord! Holy boasting... 2 Corinthians 10:17-18 * I'm proud of whom the Gospel proclaims as it's founder, the Lord and Savior. * I'm 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. * I'm proud of the virgin birth by which Jesus came to mankind, as foretold centuries before. * I'm 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. * I'm 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. * I'm proud 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.
