I am proud (Rom 15:17)

“In Christ Jesus,

Then,

I have reason to be proud

Of my work

For God.”

ἔχω οὖν τὴν καύχησιν ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ τὰ πρὸς τὸν Θεόν·

Paul said that in Christ Jesus (ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ), he had reason to be proud (ἔχω οὖν τὴν καύχησιν) of his work for God (τὰ πρὸς τὸν Θεόν).  Paul was proud or wanted to boast about the things he had done for God in Jesus Christ.  He was happy and boastful about his activity for Jesus Christ.  He was not one to be bashful about all the things that he had completed for God.  Are you proud of your work for God?
