All in the name of Jesus by Pastor Melissa Scott

I want you to really think about that because that’s false teachers. False teachers of false doctrine want you to subject yourself to something that they themselves are not willing to endure. Think about that.

“For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.” He goes on to say; and this is what’s so amazing, he says, “But God forbid that I should glory.”

The idea is these people that came in and disturbed the peace at Galatia and these that come and disturb the peace in the church of Jesus Christ today, all they would like to do is boast about their achievements and what they have done, all in the name of Jesus. But I like what Paul says. He says, “God forbid,” that’s one of his coined things that you can differentiate Paul’s writing from somebody else.

In the Greek, mai gninoito, God forbid, let it not become “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.” And if it’s not enough, when he closes with those remarks, “From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks,” the stigmata, the brand of a bond slave, “of the Lord Jesus Christ,” it is as though to say, “Hey, look, you Galatians, anything that somebody comes to brand on you as salve on the outside cannot do it.

When Jesus was crucified at the cross, I was crucified in Him. My faith brought me to the cross to die with Him, this old man container, to die with Him there.” And too, as I said, Romans 6:6, to rise to walk in newness of life with Him,

“Henceforth let no man troubles me.” Let no one come and say, “How can you; how can you let somebody take Communion?” or, “How can this person do this?” or, “How can this person call themselves a Christian if they’re still wearing make-up?” or, “If this person has this problem?” Listen.
