Gal 6:14 – being crucified!!

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

Paul is actually wrapping up much of Scripture in this one simple verse. It’s so full of truth!

Anything Paul achieved was because of what God could accomplish through Paul because of the Cross. This Cross dealt with Paul’s sin problem, his separation from God and the resulting barrier of God getting to Paul.

Eph 2:14 describes how the Cross destroys this barrier. But Paul says far more. He describes how the world is crucified to him, and him to the world. Everything that comes to him has to come through the healing, freeing and redeeming power of the Cross.

Everything flowing from Paul to the world has to go through the Cross as while he loved in physical form, his mind, emotion and spirit lived on the heaven side of the Cross! He lived Matt 6:10 and brought heaven to earth in so many ways.

Lord, let every hurt, pain,grief and scar be overshadowed by the Cross. Let grace empower me, love define me and wisdom with meekness describe me.

Let me bring Your life to earth in many different situations Lord. Let me bring healing, love, grace and the miraculous when required. It’s not about me. It’s about You Lord.

Amen.
