This week, the Lord allowed me to complete my memory of Galatians 6!!!!
14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
The verse that especially challenged me was Galatians 6:14, “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . .” In what do I glory (boast)? My works? My goodness? My accomplishments? All of these are empty glories that will vanish away. It is sobering to think of the comparison: how often do I speak of things that I do vs. what Christ has done for me? May we all learn how to glory in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
