Boasting in the Cross

We have come to the concluding section of Galatians in which Paul re-emphasizes the major themes of his epistle – that we are saved through faith in what God has accomplished on the cross rather than what we do through external religious acts.

In this week’s passage Paul contrasts the bad motives of the false teachers who are motivated by cowardice, hypocrisy and pride with his own motive which is to glory in the cross of Christ which makes us a new creation.

In what do you boast?  Has the cross changed everything for you so that you are done with the world and the world is done with you?
