  • Oriyomi Sunday Ajayi on Galatians 6:17
    Gal. 6:17. The mark of the Lord Jesus is the greatest thing that can happen to anyone. Paul overcame the beast in Melita Island because of the Lord's mark. I love this verse.

    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.

    Read Galatians 6:15-6:18.

    The Christian's glory must bear the marks of the body of Jesus Christ in the cross, in their own bodies. If we glory outside of these marks of Jesus Christ we are glorying in our own marks from the world or in the world.

    It is interesting that Paul writes in the cross instead of on the cross and it is purposeful. In the marked body of Jesus Christ is our hope and eternal life. His life was taken on a cross and his Body bore the marks of the cross yet His suffering was for our sin and our hope and our lives.

    It is in this suffering, in the cross, where we can glory because it is here that we have been freed from our bondage of sin and death.

    Jesus Christ is our beloved Savior and grace and he will bless a Christian's Spirit.
