BOASTING IN THE LORD

on

BUT NOW YE REJOICE IN YOUR BOASTINGS: ALL SUCH REJOICING IS EVIL James 4:16

Thus says the Lord : “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord .”
Jeremiah 9:23‭-‬24

As the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord .”
2 Corinthians 10:17 NLT

But Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.
Hebrews 3:6 ESV

  1. It’s True Cristina as you shared with Scripture, the wisdom of the World is foolishness and yet many trust in it and claim they know it all denying God and propagating deception such as Evolution and Paganism and so called Science but only God’s Wisdom leads to full Understanding and Knowledge based on His Truth as Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher through the empowering of the Holy Spirit leads and Teaches us. 1Corinthians 2:9-16

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the Principal thing; therefore get Wisdom: and with all thy getting get Understanding.

    Yes those who claim to be wise have fleshy pride too instead of Godly Pride as confirmed in the Scriptures below and they boast how good they are in the Carnal flesh.

    The two types of Pride, Godly Pride and worldly or fleshy pride.

    What Worldly pride is…

    Mark 7:22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

    1 John 2:15- 17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the Pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

    What Godly Pride is …

    Galatians 6: 4 Each one should understand their own actions. Then they can take Pride in themselves alone without comparing themselves to others.

    2 Corinthians 8:24 show these men the proof of your Love and the reason for our Pride in you, so that the Churches can see it.

    2 Corinthians 5:11-12 Because we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. It is plain to God what we are, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. We are giving you an opportunity to take Pride in us not trying to commend ourselves again to you so that you have an answer for those who take Pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart.

    Romans 11:13b I take Pride in my Ministry.

    As a Christian I also take Godly Pride in my Ministry to those who are in darkness and rejoice with those who are not as I’m sure you do too Cristina.

    Christian Love Always – Anne.
