Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law. Romans 3:27‭-‬28 NLT

We as Christians should never be seen as a boastful people. The world may revel in boasting and label it “self-confidence” and uphold it as a prime virtue.

For we who are in Christ, we know that all boasting is illegitimate. What do we have that we have not received? And if we received it as a gift from God, we cannot and should not boast as if we had done what God did.

By God’s design, your salvation came at no cost, everything God did to save you was at His own expense. This leaves no room at all for human boasting. God’s Word does not say boasting is “minimized” but that it is “totally excluded.” All grounds for legitimate boasting about your salvation are nonexistent.

However, if at all you will boast, the Bible provides that it is only in the Cross of Jesus Christ. It was on His Cross God completed the transaction for your redemption. May the Lord help you to always reverence Christ, live by faith in Him alone, and appropriate daily His grace that set you free from every bondage to sin, Satan, and eternal death. Good morning and do have a splendid day.

Your brother,
