MAY I NEVER BOAST EXCEPT IN THE CROSS

Neath the shadow of the cross.
A thief was dying for crimes to pay
The Savior looked towards heaven
Father please forgive him I pray

Neath the shadow of the cross
Stood a Mother watching Him there
Brother John see to thy Mother
Watch over her with your care.

Neath the shadow of the cross
Loved ones followed Him far away
As Jesus bowed thus proclaiming,
It is finished O what a blessed day.

Neath the shadow of the cross
His enemies nailed Him there
The saints were all downhearted
All being filled with deep despair.

Neath the shadow of the cross,
Midst the crowd He was alone
Praise God for now and forever
For all our sins He did atone.

Neath the shadow of the cross
Now by faith you may embrace
Come now asking for forgiveness
By accept His gift of free grace

Neath the shadow of the cross
Come asking in simple prayer
Reach out and touch His love
For you He will always be there

Do you ever feel like boasting or bragging about your Christianity ? I've been there and done that. Often times, Satan will use these sins, as well as his other evil devices, ( 2 Cor 11:3 ) ( Galatians 5:17) ( James 1:13-15 ) ( James 4:7 ) ( 1John 2:15-17 )in an effort to distract us from what got us where we are in Christ, which is God's free gift of grace. ( Ephesians 2:8-9 )

However, the scripture warns against such boasting. ( 1 Samuel 2:3 ) ( John 7:18) ( Proverbs 25:14) ( Proverbs 8:13)

If we must boast, we should boast only about our Savior's love. ( John 3:16 ) ( 1 Cor 1:31 ) His finished work on the cross ( Galatians 6:14) to save us from our inherited sin. ( Genesis 3:1-7 ) ( Romans 5:12 )

For centuries, many have tried to do away with the precious cross. And it seems as if this philosophy is getting stronger, as time goes by. ( 2 Tim 3:1-10 )

In spite of this evil mind-set, the cross will forever stand the test of time. Perhaps not publicly display, but surely in the hearts of all believers. Those who have been washed in the "blood of the lamb", Jesus Christ. Exodus 12:13 ) ( Lev 17:11)
Hebrews 9:22 ) Hebrews 13:12 ) ( 1 John 1:7 ) ( Revelation 1:5)

Amen !


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
