"God forbid that I should glory ... " (Galatians 6:14).
This is more than "I will never boast ... " Who says, "I will never boast"? Remember Peter. He said this, and, then, he denied the Lord three times.
"God forbid ... " is a prayer for God's help. It's not an assertion about what "I will never" do.
do we glory ... ? - This is more than singing hymns about the Cross of
Christ. It's more than celebrating the Lord's Supper. It's being
"crucified to the world" (Galatians 6:14). It's living as "a new
creation" (Galatians 6:15).
This is what Paul speaks about in
Galatians 5:22-25. We have received new life from the Spirit. We are to
live the new life of the Spirit - the life of "love."
