In my Intro to Missiology J-Term my professor said that an old mentor pastor once gave him some advice for young ministers: “When in doubt, brag on Jesus”.
I got to thinking about the idea of what it means to “brag on” anyone or anything. Sometimes, when I’m telling people about Laura, I’ll say, “I’m going to brag on my wife…” and then say something about what Laura has done or accomplished. It just flows naturally out because I love my wife and I love to tell people about her and about great things related to her.
I think it should be the same way with “bragging on Jesus”.
