Today we live in an age where self-expression is highly valued. There are many things that we earn for ourselves that can be a cause for boasting: our profession, our education, our ancestry, and many other things. Galatians 6:14 presents another thought. Paul tells us in this verse that his one boast was in the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. In the world’s eyes, this is nonsensical (I Cor. 1:23) but if we see what the Lord endured for us on the cross our eyes will be opened to see the value of the crucified Christ.
