Grace Based Humilty

"Call it a paradox, if you wish, but it is biblical and historical. Deep, humble dependence on the sovereign grace of God has produced world-changing achievements. Thousands have said with the apostle Paul in Col. 1:29, “For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.” This is not ego-exalting pride; this is Jesus-exalting faith."

John Piper explains gospel humilty in a great online sermon. Remember when most Christians at least tried to depend on Christ?

Read or listen to his whole sermon here.
