Gospel Pride

Gospel Pride in the Bible
1.  GOSPEL PRIDE IN ROMANS.You have seen some of Gospel Pride in Romans so far as having the dual
thrusts of:  (1)  We are not ashamed {more positively stated, we are
proud of the Gospel of Christ} of the Gospel, Romans 1:16, knowing that
it is (a) the Gospel or good news of Christ, (b) that it demonstrates the
power of God all the way to human salvation, (c) there is no
discrimination with God as it is for “everyone who believes”, and (d) it is
for the Jews first because of the election through Abraham, but also to
all Arabs, Greeks, and Gentiles; (2) Gospel pride because “hope maketh
not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by
the Holy Spirit which is given unto us”, Romans 5:5, the inward Holy
Spread spread out all over our hearts gives the only pride admissable in
the sight of God, Gospel Pride; (3) Not ashamed but proud of the “rock
of offense and stumbling block” (Romans 9:33) that God placed right in
the middle of Zion, that rock being Jesus Christ, and (4) Gospel pride
because of the awareness that by the grace and power of God, He will
not allow us to be ashamed after we believe, Romans 10:33.

2.  Is that enough on Gospel Pride, or are you interested in more?

NOTE:  Even though all human pride is forbidden in the sight of God,
pride is one of the 7 deadly sins and obvious in the sight of God,
Gospel pride is to “glory” in God and what He has done by grace and
IN CHRIST  like Paul wrote in Galatians 6:14, “But God forbid that I
should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the
world is crucified unto me and I unto the world.”

3.  Gospel Pride in Ephesians.

“In Him you also trusted, after you hear the word of truth, the
gospel of your salvation; in whom, also having believed, you were
sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.”  (Ephesians 1:13)

4.  ALL BLESSINGS AWARENESS in Ephesians 1:3-14.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has
blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in
Christ…”  (Ephesians 1:3)
