Galatians 6:14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
It all comes back to your cross, O Christ, where you suffered a pain and death like no other. What did I do to earn such grace? What have I done to deserve such compassion? What can I do to receive such mercy? Absolutely nothing! But at your cross you paid for all my sins. At your cross you freed me from the power of sin. At your cross you freed me from eternal death. At your cross I have everything I’ll ever need. I am reconciled with our heavenly Father! Therefore, “may I never boast” in my own accomplishments or good works, but may I only boast “in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Amen.
