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.
Galatians 6:14
Perhaps we might think of the cross as the altar and Jesus as the sacrifice; and perhaps we may glory in the cross as that which has put away our sins; however, that is not what the Apostle Paul is writing about in this verse. The cross is more than an altar - it is that which separates us from the world and all its pursuits! Jesus is not only the sacrifice and the object of our faith - He is the object of our affection!
