Sometimes the things right in front of us are the hardest things to see. There are things you see everyday that you are blind to. Comparison is one of those things that plays with our attention and misdirects our focus so that we forget that which is most important.

The only grounds for boasting is in the cross of Christ. "that Christ crucified always be our boast and exultation and joy and praise—that Christ get glory and thanks and honor for every good thing in our lives and every bad thing that God turns for good." Paul means for us to have one solitary focus and passion for our lives: the cross of Christ exculted in every nook and crany of our lives.

If you had to summarize the blessings that we receive in Christ, what would they be? Paul emphasizes that the peace of God found in Christ also gives us access to grace and hope. Grace and hope summarize the manifold riches that we receive when we believe in Christ. Can you imagine what Christianity would be without grace and hope. These two blessings of the Gospel give us the main reason it is wonderful to be a Christian.
