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 world.
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 nothing compared to the joy and assurance of sharing in Jesus' life, death, and resurrection.
Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me a reason for boasting in Jesus' love and grace demonstrated in the Cross. Thank you for all you do. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.
