When was the last time you heard someone boasting?

When we boast about something, we talk with excessive pride and self-satisfaction about your own (or someone close to you) achievements, possessions, or abilities.

Boasting isn’t necessarily something that is well received by the listener as it can sound like you are trying to out-do them, or make them feel inferior – both of which I’m sure you’d agree is not a good thing.

In Galatians 6:14 (The Message) we read:

For my part, I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ.

Chris Tomlin sings I Will Boast which is based on these words. Please listen to this song, and reflect on whether you boast only about Christ, and the cross.

I will boast only in the cross
Where my Savior died for me
Nothing else, no other love,
Goes so far and runs so deep
I will boast only in the cross
See His head, His hands, and feet
Scars of grace, scars that heal
He broke the curse and set me free
Only One took the nails
Only One tore the veil
Only One spotless Lamb
I will boast only in the cross
I will boast only in the cross
The Father’s love at Calvary
My sin erased, my debt He paid
This is my hope, the song I sing
This is my hope, the song I sing
Only One
