May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

– Galatians 6:14 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

The apostle Paul’s final statements to the Galatians should grip our hearts today. As powerful as the teachings of Christ are, the cross should be the defining mark of our lives. There are many people who want Jesus’ morality, but don’t acknowledge the need for His death. But the cross tells us that we can’t save ourselves. Without the cross, Jesus teachings are good ideas. With the cross, Jesus teachings are words from heaven, for the cross has opened our eyes to see the world around us in a new light.
