Today's Verse : Galatians 6:14


June 14, 2012

May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the
-- Galatians 6:14

Do you have a basis for pride? What is your source of that
pride? Paul reminds us that our one, true, and dependable source of
boasting is boasting in what the Lord has done for us on the Cross.
This one source of boasting has absolutely nothing to do with
anything that we have done, attained, or accomplished on our own.
All other reasons to boast are fleeting glimpses at hollow fame
compared to the joy and assurance of sharing in Jesus' life, death,
and resurrection.

Forgive me, O Abba Father, for the times I have thought myself
important because of some transitory accomplishment. Thank you for
giving me a bedrock source of boasting in Jesus' love and grace
demonstrated in the Cross. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.
