B.†† Davidís advance from logistical grace to supergrace vividly illustrates that the POG is all about living and advancing in Godís grace Ė and has NOTHING to do with anymerit in or ability of man, 1 Cor 1:26-29.

††††††††††† 1.†† The POG does not depend upon human wisdom, 1 Cor 1:26.

††††††††††† 2.†† The POG does not depend upon human strength, 1 Cor 1:26.
