THE STORY OF JESUS: Galatians 4-6
“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 6:14)
What do I talk the most about?
Am I focused more on Jesus the His life, death and resurrection?
Or is most of my talk about church, or spiritual practices, or good deeds?
This is especially a struggle for me, in that I work in the church.
There was a time when I spoke mostly about churchy stuff.
I debated church issues and church practices, and had strong opinions.
At one point I crashed spiritually, and realized how empty my faith was.
My issues were different than these Galatians, but I was still sidetracked.
My boasting was not about Jesus, but about being right.
“It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good.” (Galatians 4:18)
Nowadays I find churchy talk tiresome, I want to know and show Jesus.
I want to discover what it means to live by, be led by, the Spirit of Jesus!
I have not figured this out, and I have a long way to go.
But my boast is Jesus, Who loved me and gave Himself for me!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, I love to talk with You, and I love to talk about You. Fill me with Your Spirit, so that I may also show You in all I say and do!
