Day 4 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. – Galatians 6:14 

Lord, there are so many things I take pride in, so many things I want others to know I have accomplished. Thank you Lord for Your cross. It reminds me that it is not about what I have done, am doing or will do. It is about what You alone have done! Your work on the cross accomplished my redemption and provided salvation for all who have placed their faith in You. By it the world has been crucified to me. It has nothing to offer me. It is dead to me. I have also been crucified to the world. I need not  seek it’s approval. It is only in the cross of Christ that  I make my boast. This season may my heart and mind be occupied with these three crucifixions, My Savior on the Cross, the world to me and me to the world. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
