Galatians Teaches Boasting Galatians 6:11-18
Galatians 6:17 From now on let no one cause me trouble
Galatians 6:11 See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand.
Acts 15:1 But some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brothers, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.” … 5 But some believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees rose up and said, “It is necessary to circumcise them and to order them to keep the law of Moses.”
BELIEVING IN CHRIST
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
BELIEVING IN CHRIST Galatians 6:12 It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh who would force you to be circumcised, and only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 For even those who are circumcised do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may boast in your flesh.
BELIEVING IN CHRIST Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. 11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,
BELIEVING IN CHRIST Galatians 6:15 For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
BELIEVING IN CHRIST
BOASTING IN THE CROSS
2 Corinthians 5:21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
BOASTING IN THE CROSS “Every time we look at the cross Christ seems to say to us, ‘I am here because of you. It is your sin I am bearing, your curse I am suffering, your debt I am paying, your death I am dying.’ Nothing in history or in the universe cuts us down to size like the cross. All of us have inflated views of ourselves, especially in self-righteousness, until we have visited a place called Calvary. It is there, at the foot of the cross, that we shrink to our true size.” John Stott
BOASTING IN THE CROSS Galatians 6:14 But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

BEHAVING AS CRUCIFIED Matthew 23:5 They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, 6 and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues 7 and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi by others.
BEHAVING AS CRUCIFIED Isaiah 29:13 And the Lord said: “Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me,”
