Gospel Of Grace - Part 14
Boast In The Lord
Galatians 6:11-18

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forevermore. Amen. Galatians 1:3-5

Boasting in the flesh!

  • Galatians 6:12-13 = motive
  • Those who desire to make a good showing in the flesh try to compel you to be circumcised, simply so that they will not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. For those who are circumcised do not even keep the Law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised so that they may boast in your flesh.

What is my motive?

  • To avoid ridicule in our service for Christ?
  • To take pride in what impresses others?
  • Matthew 23:1-12

But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Galatians 6:1

1 Corinthians 1:20-25
1 Corinthians 2:1-2
Romans 1:16-1

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:2

Grace people boast in Jesus!
