Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage
“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.”
- What kind of thinking was creeping into the faith of the Galatians (Galatians 6:13)?
- Jesus Himself tells us what it means to live our faith (Matthew 22:34-40), and where salvation comes from (John 14:6). Write down what kind of faith Jesus calls us to.
- Why does Paul boast?
- The cross of Christ gives us all reason to boast. “It doesn’t matter whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation.” Galatians 6:13 NLT – According to verse 13 what really counts?
- Are you a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17-19)?
- Focus on the cross – boast in what Christ has done for you! Is there something in your mindset that is distracting you from your focus on Jesus. Pray about it and ask God to focus you on Christ. Write about your journey.
Boast in the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ! I will be praying for you!
