2 Corinthians: Sufficient Grace
God wants us to boast in the Lord. How can we do this? We boast in the Lord (1) by guarding truth (2 Cor. 10:1-6), (2) by recognizing the Lord as the Giver of authority (2 Cor. 10:7-10), and (3) by glorying in the Lord Who commends us (2 Cor. 10:12-17).
The Cross of Christ

Comparison is one of those things that plays with our attention and misdirects our focus so that we forget that which is most important.

Parkers Lake Baptist Church • Sermon • • 15 views
When reading scripture it's no surprise to find that proud boasting is detestable to God, even an abomination (Prov 16:5). But as we conclude the book of Galatians this Sunday, we find there is one matter in which we should boast: the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Paul highlights for us the reasons why a torturous method of execution in his day had most dramatically turned into Christians' one and only boast and how it so drastically alters our priorities in this present world.

Have you ever interacted with someone who always had his nose stuck in the air? He thought he was better than everyone else. He had everything together and didn’t need anyone’s help. He was arrogant. We all can think of someone. Some of us might even say that this described us in the past. Arrogance.…
