Grace is greater than boasting. Grace supercedes boasting. “For it is by grace we are saved by faith that no man may boast.” Ephesians 3
Boasting is an egregious error.
Humiliation is equally egregious. We are neither great nor small. Rather, we are nothing except for the grace of God which declares we are of great worth – because of the worth of Christ imputed to us through His righteousness, rightness, and rightly relatedness to God The Father, not ours.
Instead of self-boasting, Paul boasts in Christ. What would our lives, conversations, and relationships look like if we focused on boasting in Christ instead of ourselves?
