The apostle Paul tells us in the book of Galatians that salvation is only by God’s grace. Because we can not earn salvation, but are only given it through God’s grace, we should brag about what God has done in our lives. Here are four practical ways to do that.
#1 Praise Him at Church
One very easy way to brag about God is to come to church to do so. We can brag about God outside of church, but a lot of the church service is set up to thank and praise Him for what He has done. From the songs we sing, the communion we take, and the sermons we hear, it should all be about Jesus and His grace.
#2 Tell Others How Great He Is
We should not just tell those who agree with us in the church service how great God is, but tell others as well. From friends, to family, to neighbors, we can always be bragging about God’s work in our life about something.
#3 Share God’s Grace in Your Weakness
Share about how great God is through your weakness. Often people may think we are great people, or have life together. The reality is, without God’s grace, we all fall short. II Corinthians 12:9 says that God works best in our weakness. Share with people how you are weak, but God’s grace has built you up despite your weakness, so they can see His power.
#4 Praise Him for What You Have
Realize that everything we have is from God (James 1:17). God is the one who blesses us with everything. When we praise God publicly, whether it be in conversation or social media, others will see how great God is.
How are you boasting about God’s work in your life? What has He done in your life through the years, or even today that you can share with others? When was the last time you shared God’s greatness with others?
