Hebrews 10:35-36 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:
I believe that a truly Born Again Christian can mistake CONFIDENCE and think that it is Pride.
When Jesus gave the Great Commission, He included his Authority along with the GO ye and preach and teach. We should not to be afraid to use what he has equipped us to use.
The Bible instructs us to Fear NOT and to be bold in the Lord. Although humility is also a walk, boldness truly means that IN Christ I can do all things through Him, but without Him I am nothing.
Psalms 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
Proverbs 28:1 Amplified Bible The wicked flee when no man pursues them, but the [uncompromisingly] righteous are bold as a lion.
As a garment we put on HIS righteousness, (not our own) we can then stand PROUD in God and act out what He is telling us to do.
Be confident in the assurance that God is proud of YOU!
Does that not please you?
