Brag away

March 24, 2008

I have been being completely overwhelmed by a simple thought this past week. It hit me on Thursday, and was the first thing to rush into my mind on Saturday when I had to share the gospel with a group of around 50 men… I have nothing to brag about. But I will certainly make my boast in the cross of Jesus Christ.

Think about it. Pile up all that I have done that is good, every sacrifice, every gift, every event of loving the hard to love, and compare it to the wood, the spikes, the crown of thorns, and the victorious cry of “Finished!“. He did that for me.

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Gal. 6.14)
