“But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth & knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, & righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.” -Jer 9:24

We all boast in something. Boasting is what we fall back on when a challenge or opponent faces us. It is the thing that causes us to say, “I can do it. I can win.”

You may be boasting in yourself- health, strength, education, wisdom, experience, wealth, etc.

You may be boasting in your religious activity- I’m good, I fulfill my duties, I treat people well, etc.

All these things will fail us at some point, to our greatest opponent- death.

Christ faced death for us, and He defeated it. It couldn’t keep Him, and He holds the keys to death and Hell.

When death comes to you, the only way you’ll face it and win is if you’re boasting in Christ.

Choose to boast in Christ alone.

Psalms 34:2
“My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.”

Galatians 6:14
“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.”
