Boast In The Lord

29 This was all done so that no human being could boast in front of God. 30 But God brought you into [fellowship with] Christ Jesus, who was made to be God's wisdom for us. Through Christ you have received a right relationship with God, [as well as] holiness and redemption [i.e., being bought back from Satan]. 31 So, as it is written [Jer. 9:23f], "The person who [wants to] boast, let him boast about the Lord."
