To Boast in the Lord

Gal 6:14 God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ…

A man takes a photo of himself and a huge fish he has caught.
A woman takes a selfie of herself in the praise band at her church.
Which one has boasted in the Lord?

A hunter submits a photo of himself and his first kill of deer season to the local paper.
A church youth group submits a photo of their missionary trip to help rebuild homes in a poor neighborhood.
Which one has boasted in the Lord?

A couple makes a Facebook post of their photos of a vacation and a pastor makes a post of a picture of himself in prayer.
Which one has boasted in the Lord?

It’s ok to be proud of your accomplishments but it is perfectly ok to honor God in all you do.

As the Psalmist said, “In God we boast all day long and praise Your name forever.” (Ps 44:8) and “My soul shall make its boast in the Lord!” (Ps 34:2)

Abba Father, my deep desire is to praise You in all I do. I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ or of my life in Him! In Jesus’ name, I live in You. YES&AMEN
