Take Up Your Cross November 3rd 2015

Do you find great pleasure in the things of God?

But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. (Galatians 6:14 KJV)

Mankind finds many earthly things to glory in.  Our careers, our children, our accomplishments, our bank accounts and financial means, our home, and many other earthly standards and accomplishments which have nothing to do with glorying in anything of an eternal nature of God.

To glory in the things of God is to find great pleasure in the spiritual things of God.  It is to glory in God, the sacrifice of His Son on the cross, His Truth, His Word, and His will for our lives.  It is desiring to live according to God’s will, rather than seeking our own will.  It is living in the eternal accomplishments of God and His Son, rather than any of our own accomplishments, which always pale and diminish in the magnificent light and power of God.
