Reading Galatians With Charles Spurgeon

Devotional

DAY 13: GALATIANS 6:11-18


Jesus to be Great Among the Nations

Spurgeon’s notes on 6:14


Among scholars Paul might have taken an eminent position. Yet, though he must have felt a human delight in the talents which God had given him—and must have known that he possessed them—he still says concerning them, “I will never boast about anything.” He seems to take all that he had, all that he did, and all that he was, and put it all away, and come forward with no other theme upon his lips and no greater love in his heart except this—Jesus crucified for the sons of men. Jesus to be great among the nations. Jesus, the slaughtered Lamb, to be made for people their life from the dead, their salvation from going down into the pit.
