No Place for Pride

Ephesians 2:8-10

Proposition: There is no place for pride in the body of Christ…

  1. God has given us unmerited favor (8-9)
    1. Salvation is by grace
    2. We are passive participants in salvation
    3. Salvation is a gift
    4. We contribute nothing to salvation
  2. We are God’s work (10)
    1. We are God’s new creation
    2. Good works are a part of God’s plan

You can’t blame any human faults on God, for pride causes all human offenses. Their remedy, however, the conviction and removal of sin, comes from heaven.
-Augustine
