"On Whom Do You Boast?"

“On Whom Do You Boast?”

“Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one who the Lord commends. 2 Corinthians 10:17-18

If you MUST BOAST, don’t BOAST on yourself. God is the One we SHOULD be BOASTING on. It is He, who gifts us with whatever abilities we might possess. Whether we have natural talents, such as, playing a musical instrument, or being able to sing, without, hitting ALL those flat and sour notes. Some of us just like to make a JOYFUL noise to God.

But, whatever we are GIFTED to do, we MUST realize where that gift comes from, and we NEED to be OPEN to God, as to HOW He wants us to use that gift(s). In the Apostle Paul’s letter to Timothy, (2 Timothy 3:16-17) Paul states: “ALL Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the SERVANT of God may be THOROUGHLY EQUIPPED for EVERY GOOD WORK.” Which means that God expects us to USE our gift(s) for His HONOR and GLORY, for He is the ONLY ONE WORTHY of our PRAISE and our BOASTING.

BOASTING on God is a WHOLE lot BETTER than trying to BOAST on our OWN selves. When we are tempted to BOAST on what we have done, and we allow that DASTARDLY OLD Devil to GRANDIOUSLY use our God-given abilities in ways that would NOT be PLEASING to our HEAVENLY FATHER, we then are subject to becoming a CARNAL CHRISTIAN, and while we will NOT lose our SALVATION, we will lose rewards, to lay at the FEET of the One who DESERVES ALL the BOASTING we can offer. So my question is: “On Whom Do You BOAST?

If you have NEVER given your HEART and LIFE to God, then your GOD-GIVEN ABILITIES are NOT being USED to bring HONOR, GLORY and PRAISE to the ONE who RIGHTLY DESERVES ALL your BOASTING. And you are on your way to an ETERNITY in HELL with ALL its HORRORS, and definitely NO BOASTING ALLOWED. And NO WAY of ESCAPE. So in order to CHANGE your ETERNITY from HELL to HEAVEN, and to USE your ABILITIES for the GLORY of the LORD. And to BOAST ON Him, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then ACCEPT His GIFT of SALVATION, and an ETERNITY in HEAVEN. Then USE your ABILITIES to HONOR and GLORIFY the RISEN KING, JESUS, and BOAST ON HIM! Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
