Boasting in the Cross (Gal. 6:11-15)

In Paul’s final warning to the Galatians, he reminds them again of the law-relying Judaizers – those who were clinging to a works-based righteousness in order to gain favor before God. Though they were rigorous and zealous law keepers, Paul points out that in reality they were seeking to avoid persecution for the cross of Christ, looking for more reasons to boast in their accomplishments, and  still not keeping the law perfectly (as their own legalism would require). In this sermon, Pastor Leandre explains the meaning and significance of boasting in the cross alone, in the work of Christ on our behalf. “For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation” (Gal 6:15).
