“Only Source of Pride”
Galatians 6: 14: “But may it never be that I should boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Nothing – our degrees, our books, the number of people at our meetings (no matter how inflated they are), the number of people who follow us on our social media – nothing – can be a source of boasting to us. Why? For one thing, because it all come from God anyway (John 3: 27), and for another, it all pales in comparison to what God has already done. One look at the cross should humble all our boasting into what it truly is – empty.
