Should Christians Have Swagger?

Pastor Ed Young would like for  Christians to get their swagger back.....Pastor Young seems to think the Christian Church  have allowed the enemy to steal our swagger....so he have started a new sermon series title "Swagger Jacker" he also done a rap video to go alone with the series.
"You’ve seen it on the street. You’ve witnessed it in the office. You’ve been there when it walked into a room, and everyone immediately knew. It is the unmistakable presence of swagger—not arrogance or pride, but true swagger.
The truth is that God wants us all to experience a life of swagger. It’s not something that is reserved for the few. Yet, somewhere along the way, our swagger is hijacked, taken, stolen. And as a result, our everyday confidence is shot. Where did it go? Can we get it back? And once we do, what does a life a swagger really look like?" Urban Dictionary
I don't believe as Christians we were called to have swagger.....we were called to be “set apart” from the world!Christians were called to be humble.....Paul exhorts us in Philippians 2 to have the mind or attitude of Christ!  Philippians 2:7 says this about Christ: “Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being.....” If Jesus, who is God, could humble himself to become lower than the angels and didn’t walk around in arrogance or pride, then who are we to be walking around haughtily? Jesus humbled himself and washed his disciples’ feet in John 13...... He led by example to show us what it means to be humble. Swagger is not humility. Swagger is not biblical.
