"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." Gal. 6:14
It's only by GRACE that the world is "crucified unto me". It is only the cross that has made this so....that the world is "crucified unto me, and I unto the world."
But, the world to me is "dead". I care not much for it, by God's grace. The "glitter" holds very little charm for me....
I, also, am "crucified" unto the world. They look at me as something "strange and odd", out of place. It is if I am just "dead", not there.
I love this verse! It is so true!
And I am humbled to realize that GOD is the One who has made it so. Why me and not others? Why is the world "dead" to me? Praise be to God!
