S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
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.
In writing to the people of Galatia, Paul the Apostle was reminding them of those who had reverted to pharisaical ways of promoting the law. In fact, he said the people who are boasting are boasting about how many of You they’ve gotten to go through the act of circumcision. Of course this act was an outside act of the flesh to signal one’s conversion to Judaism. Paul said, “I can only boast in the Cross of Christ.”
“The Only Boast That Matters” is the boast one makes about the work Jesus accomplished on the cross. Jesus went from life to death on the cross in order for us to go from death to life on this earth. “The Only Boast That Matters” happens when you and I and other fellow “Followers Of Jesus” tell everyone we know about our Lord’s sacrifice on that cross. The more people hear about what Jesus did for them, the more they will want to give their lives to Him. Once that happens, they now have Eternal Life! It’s easy to see that Paul the Apostle was right. Boasting in the cross of our Lord Jesus is really, “The Only Boast That Matters.”
There are two things that I want to say this AM. First, thank You for giving Your life on the Cross. Second, I will spend the rest of my life boasting in Your Cross. Amen
